School starts tomorrow in Wisconsin and in less than a week, all the kiddos will be sent home with the Market Day Fundraiser Pack.
Here is the scoop…the school averages about 5% profit on the purchase.
Compared to a lot of other fundraisers, this is about the WORST fundraiser out there (in my opinion).
If you wanted to give your school $20 – you would have to sell $400 of their WAY over priced food items.
Let’s look at a few items:
4# Frozen Corn #8180 $8.99 ($2.25/#) vs $.50/# at the store, on sale, for a difference of $1.75/#
3# Mixed Grill #1264 $ 15.99 ($5/#)vs $1.99/# for a differenceof $3.01/#
Seasoned Salmon #2050 $16.99 ($13.59/#)vs $4-5/# for a difference of $8-9/#
3# Chicken Steaks # 3069 $13.89 ($4.66/#)vs $1.99/# or less for a difference of $2.66/# or more
3# Italian Style Meatballs #1215 $12.29 ($4/#) vs $2/# of less for a difference of $2/#
You can see – this is NO BARGAIN!
It gets worse: you have to pay sales tax on your items! I’m not sure how they can do this, as food is non taxable in Wisconsin….they should only be able to tax the shipping/handling.
I don’t know about you…but I simply plan to hand the packet back with a $20 bill this year.
