Farm to School Fundraising

Have you heard about FarmRaiser?

FarmRaiser is an exciting new option for school fundraising available in Michigan today! 

FarmRaiser connects farmers and food artisans to student-led fundraisers, turning energetic students into healthy-eating advocates that sell locally-grown and -made products.  Our kids, our schools and our communities need an alternative to the typical product fundraisers that have our kids pushing wrapping paper, candy bars, cookie dough and other preservative-filled or high-priced, low-value products each year. 

We believe the way to sustainably strengthen our schools and communities is by embracing local food systems and the farmers, artisans and businesses that make these economies thrive. By giving student the tools to advocate for healthy eating and food selection and allowing them to sell wholesome, locally-grown and-made products, FarmRaiser is restoring value and purpose to an annual ritual that has lost its way in a sea of sugar and junk food.
