Questions about Virginia Diner Snack Food?
How it Works
How do we raise money?
Your group raises money when students take orders from their brochure.
Do students get a brochure to show?
Yes. Every student receives a snack food brochure, order form, and money envelope.
Is money collected up front?
Yes. Supporters can pay by check, cash, money order, or cashier’s check.
Are there any fees?
There are no setup fees or supply costs to start a Virginia Diner snack food fundraiser.
Can students earn prizes?
Yes. Our prize programs are optional but encouraged. You can improve sales by offering prizes to your students. It’s important to discuss our incentives at your kickoff meeting. Then, continue to remind your students about them throughout your sale. This will keep them motivated.
If your group has 100 or more students, a prize flyer is placed in each seller’s packet. For smaller groups, the sponsor receives a PDF with their ‘fundraiser supply kit’ email.
There is no cost for our incentives.
How soon can we start?
After you submit our ‘start a fundraiser’ form you’ll receive an agreement to sign. It will then take at least 7-10 business days to process your order and pack and ship out your supplies.
How long is the fundraiser?
Your sale lasts for 2 weeks. You can always change your end date. Simply let us know before your sale is over.
Can we also raise money online?
Yes, selling online is an important part of your Virginia Diner snack food fundraiser. Before your sale, you’ll receive registration instructions to pass onto your students. Once registered they’ll be able to invite friends and family to shop at your store.
Selling online adds a 2nd way for your group to raise money.
Do students need to register?
Registration is the most effective way to make Virginia Diner snack food sales online. It's also a great way to get your students engaged in your cause. As students register, they’ll be able to share their unique link using text, social media, and/ or email.
This takes supporters to your store where the student’s name appears at the top of the page. This helps make it recognizable to friends and family. For example, “Purchases from this page will be credited to John Doe in support of ABC High School Band.”
Registered sellers will also be able to earn credit towards prizes. We encourage groups to supplement our prize program with their own rewards. This can help bring in more sales. Here are some incentive ideas.
Do we get our own link?
There are 2 ways to promote your store:
- Registration: By default, your group will receive a unique group ID number. Students will need it to register and share their store link using social media, text, and/or email.
- Direct Link: Or, you as the sponsor can register and obtain your unique link first. Then share that link with your entire group. Students would be able to share your link with their friends and family.
Can we accept donations?
Yes, your store will be set up to accept donations. You make 70% of the donated amount.
Is there a minimum order?
There are no order requirements for a Virginia Diner snack food fundraiser.
How much money can we make?
You’ll need to know your group size as well your student goal. Here’s how you can estimate your profit:
- Student Count x Student Item Goal = Items Sold
- Items Sold x Average Retail Price = Gross Sales
- Gross Sales x Profit % = Group Profit
- Let’s say you have 60 students and you set your student item goal at 10. The items sold would be 60 Students x 10 Items / Student = 600.
- 2. Next, determine your gross sales. The average retail price is about $13 so your gross sales would be 600 Items x $13 = $7,800.
- Since your profit is 40%, your group profit would be $7,800 x 40% = $3,120.
Keep in mind, our example is only an estimated profit. In reality, students probably won’t sell the same number of items. In addition, the average retail dollars sold per seller will vary.
Can we track our sales?
Brochure: You probably won’t know how many orders you get until you collect your order forms. But there are strategies that can give you a ballpark idea. Learn how to track your fundraising progress
Online: You'll receive up-to-date sales whenever you log into your dashboard. You'll know students who’ve sent emails to friends and family as well as the latest sales activity.
How do we receive our money?
Brochure Sales: Money and order forms are turned in at the end of the sale. The money gets deposited in your group account and the order forms are sent in for processing.
Once orders are processed, the group receives their sales reports and invoice. The group sends a check for the invoice amount and keeps the rest as profit.
Online Sales: Once we receive your brochure invoice payment, we’ll send your online sales profit check.
Donations: Any profits from donations are included with the online sales check.
What is our profit?
Groups make 40% off all Virginia Diner snack food items.
You receive 70% of online donations.

- Groups with 100 or more students: Shipping is free for 250+ item orders. A $250 shipping and handling fee is charged for orders with fewer than 250 items.
