Food Fundraiser Ideas to Host on Airmart

Whether you’re fundraising for cheer, band, football, your sorority/fraternity, or a noble cause, food fundraisers are always a good idea. And you don’t have to go door-to-door like the Girl Scouts– you can fundraise from wherever you are with an online food fundraiser. Here are some food fundraiser ideas you can host on Airmart, with low upfront costs.

Food Fundraiser Ideas

Virtual Bake Sale

No more standing around campus or outside the local grocery store for hours wondering how many of your delicious baked goods will go to waste. With a virtual bake sale on Airmart, all you have to do is set up an online shop, share the QR code or the link, arrange a pickup spot, and/or make the deliveries with your team.

Setting up a bake sale pop-up shop on Airmart is super simple. You can choose to accept Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, or cash to avoid credit card fees and make payments easier for everyone.

For your virtual bake sale, you can request donations of baked goods from local bakeries, or make your own following your local cottage food operation guidelines. You can even collect pre-orders ahead of time before you start baking, so nothing goes to waste.

Cookie Decorating Kits

This is the perfect holiday food fundraiser idea. Bake sugar cookies in various festive shapes, and package them with icing, sprinkles, edible glitter, and the works.

Tip: Make a few packages to photograph and post in your Airmart shop, but don’t bake or buy more supplies until the pre-orders start rolling in.

Snack Boxes/Care Packages

For snack boxes: Gather an exciting assortment of snacks and package them in colorful boxes. Perhaps you source items that are hard to find in the U.S. or fun nostalgic snacks people have forgotten about.

Care packages are an excellent food fundraiser idea for college students. Incoming freshmen will be delighted to have welcome care packages for their dorms, and students in all years will be grateful for some extra TLC during finals weeks. You can promote the care packages online for both parents and students to purchase. College care packages may include snacks and helpful essentials like coffee, lip balm, chewing gum, etc.

With Airmart, you don’t have to buy the snacks upfront. You can collect pre-orders for the snack boxes and only order what you need. Companies and local businesses may be willing to donate snacks or offer discounts.
