It's estimated that Americans eat 13 billion quarts, or 52 billion cups, of popcorn every year. That’s an average of 168 cups of popcorn per person per year! Of those 13 billion quarts, we consume somewhere around 30 percent in schools or theaters. This means the popcorn fundraiser is prime money raising territory.
How Popcorn Became a Fundraiser
The modern discovery of popcorn originates from a location in New Mexico called the “Bat Cave.” Kernels were found, along with some ears of corn, that could be carbon dated back 5,600 years. Depictions were found in Mexico from 300 A.D. of a god wearing popped kernels on headpieces and clothing.
It is now believed that Native Americans consumed popcorn. Eventually colonists caught on and began to combine it with molasses as a sugary treat. What a rich history for a school fundraising favorite!
Popcorn became essential during the Great Depression. This is when street vendors in Chicago could mass-produce it for virtually no cost. But the real explosion of popcorn came with the movie industry. Those same street vendors tended to areas with large amounts of people. Specifically theaters.
Even with TV and Netflix, movie theaters remain synonymous with popcorn. With microwavable popcorn, the market now leans more towards residential consumption. Now, popcorn fundraising is a staple in elementary, middle and high schools.
Today with so many toppings and flavors, popcorn creates a more interesting experience. Especially compared with that classic air-popped crunch. Many people use popcorn as a snack to keep a rumbly tummy at bay. This means your sales aren’t limited to the neighborhood. Sporting events and after school activities are both great opportunities.
Popcorn Fundraiser Ideas for Schools
Gourmet popcorn is one of the more profitable fundraisers available for schools. Suggested selling prices range from $2 to $10 per bag, starting at 40% profit. But, if you buy additional cases, the profitability grows. For example, 10 cases of cheddar cheese will profit you $108 per case.
