Snack Cart at St. John
We used part of our FUTP 60 funds from the Wisconsin Dairy Farmers to purchase materials and food for a snack cart. Our team members staff the cart, collecting money, packaging food and selling merchandise. Adults help with shopping and returning cart to the walk in cooler. Snacks are sold 2 mornings a week as students arrive. Items sold include cheese sticks, yogurt cups, small bags of cereal (to mix into the yogurt or to snack on) bananas, mandarin oranges, breakfast bars, carrots and yogurt-based ranch dip and small packs of raisins. All items are 50 cents each. We are learning as we go but after a month, we are pleased with our repeat customers and with offering healthy snacks for students and staff.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We hope sales will support purchasing more food. Our team members will create shopping lists and work on pricing adjustments as needed. We will need to recruit student sellers as well as adult shoppers to take turns with the responsibilities.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Our students are the main workers selling, collecting money and displaying our offerings. Adults shop and assist as needed. Together they will create shopping lists and work on pricing items for some profit.
