Healthy Concession Stand Ideas

CONCESSION STANDS

Implementation Ideas

Concessions are part of many most school-sponsored sporting events. They also help student groups and clubs raise needed activity funds. WASD Wellness Policy requires 50% of foods offered in concessions to be “healthy” choices.  Concession sales can be a great opportunity to provide and promote healthy choices. Students will buy and consume healthy foods and beverages when the options are accessible, affordable and tasty. Concession sales can be profitable and contribute to the health and well-being of students.
