We get 15 pizzas from Costco sell every slice. Cheese and pep sells the best at $2. Combo isn't as popular. We have 625 students but not nearly that many attend. Nachos also do well. We're thinking about chili but due to a lack of volunteers we are having a hot dog/ gourmet sausage and sno cone cart/truck coming. Also our popcorn popper is flaky and every time we rented sno cone it over heated. Never could keep up with the cotton candy demand but might give it another shot.

Our usual at our spring carnival is alot of things that can go together. We offer chili, hotdogs, hamburgers, nachos and cheese, pretzels, which can also (for additional cost) go into chili dogs, chili nachos and cheese, cheeseburger and cheese and pretzel. also sell water and soda, popcorn and cotton candy and sno cones are sometimes sold too. we keep the prices reasonable as alot of families are feeding a few kids and we want to encourage them to come back!!

We have a bit of a different take on the food we serve at our fall craft/garage/bake sale. Several Moms make gallons of homemade soups and we serve them with fancy breads donated by a local gourmet bakery. (We're in Minnesota and the first weekend in November is usually a little nippy) We also do the hot dog/chips thing for the kiddies. We have a whole host of desserts that sell like crazy by the slice, such as rum cake, cheese cake, cakes, pies, bars, cookies, etc. Our "cafe" is one of the biggest profit centers at the sale.
