Quota clubs around the world find treasure in food. Check out these GREAT IDEAS from five groups with recipes for success!
The Five Cities Quota Club in California, U.S.A., raises about U.S.$3,000 for club service with its annual enchilada sale. Every club member participates in pre-selling the delicious Mexican fare, gathering to cook, and manning the carryout booth on the day of the sale. Some of the enchiladas are frozen for a later date, when the club caters a meal at the local People’s Kitchen in Grover Beach.
Several clubs in New South Wales, Australia, count on catering to boost club coffers. Members say working together to prepare and serve food makes the effort both fun and profitable.
The Casino Quota Club is famous for donuts, sold at a number of events from their Quota Caravan. But when catering a Charity Golf Day or day at the races, members prepare more substantial fare, featuring hot beef rolls. Past club president Jannie Stevens says catering “is proving a winner for our club, because we have fun while we make money.”
The Wellington Quota Club is famous locally for their hamburger-catering event during the Wellington Vintage Fair. Meanwhile, the Coonamble Quota Club partners with the local Lion’s Club to cater the annual “come-by-chance Picnic Races” in their community, and the Gunnedah Quota Club caters an annual clearing sale in their town. Each club raises around Aus.$1,500 for service and considers these events their most successful annual fund-raisers.
