Selling Junk Food
High school is full of class work, tests, friends, clubs and organization, and fundraising in which students are involved . Clubs and organizations need to raise money throughout the school year for equipment, educational trips, and uniforms. Should schools raise money by selling candy and sugary soft drinks to students? Items such as candy and sodas should be allowed to be sold in school for fundraising. According to Harvard School of Public Health, the amount of soft drinks that children consume is higher than ever. This would be beneficial when marketing to the student body. Schools should allow fundraising through the use of selling candy and soft drinks because it is a great way to raise a good deal of money. The money goes towards great causes. It can be used make the school a better place. Fund-raising is a great way to teach students about customer service skills and goal setting. The ability to work as a team and working with others is a common goal that is an important part of school fund-raising. According to brighthub.com, “it teaches students how to compromise in group situations and it teaches them how to act appropriately in leadership and subordinate roles.”
Coke is the largest seller of soda pop every penny marketer’s use is profitable . Bookkeepers would have to count the profit needed after extended investments. They return investment on every promoting project they begin. The idea is to find a process that works for the business and begin putting one’s money to work for oneself. I think they distribute these soft drinks to school age kids knowing its not healthy. It is because apple or grape juice may be healthier for the students rather than sugary soda pop like Coke.
If they switch they will have less chance of health problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure. If they stay they will have more chance of being unhealthier from excessive sugar. Type 2 diabetes is a disease in which blood sugar levels are above normal. High blood sugar is a major cause of heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, amputation, and blindness. According to”National Institutes of Health (NIH).” U.S National Library of Medicine. In 2009, diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. High blood pressure is linked to overweight and obesity in several ways. Having a large body size may increase blood pressure because your heart needs to pump harder to supply blood to all your cells. Excess fat may also damage your kidneys, which help regulate blood pressure.
The money raised they use it to buy uniforms , educational trips, and equipment. The faculty cannot get this help from the state or the county, so this is why they involve PTA, PTO or other establishments to donate money. The community usually give the profits to the schools to help support field trips or other expenses. For that reason, the school district may do its own fundraising. According to toped.svefoundation.org. For example, it is not mandatory to send a note home with students that families should make a“recommended donation” for field trips. As a precise thing, superintendents should also acknowledge the problems that will occur if money is raised for the field trips of of one appropriate high school that is lacking in the community.
In my finalizing of my research I’ve stated that schools use the funding from these sales for uniforms. I think a better solution could be is to get this help from the state or the county, so this is why they involve PTA, PTO or other establishments to donate money and also Should schools raise money by selling candy and sugary soft drinks to students? Items such as candy and sodas should be allowed to be sold in school for fundraising.
