By matching-up the correct taste profiles with snacks and drinks that are both healthy and affordable, we’re allowing healthy vending to succeed in Miami schools where it has previously failed.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 25, 2010
An age-old myth is being dispelled – eating healthy no longer means burning a hole in your pocket. Recognizing that local Miami school officials have long been frustrated by the lack of affordable healthy food and drink options for their students, HUMAN Healthy Vending has created a “$1 ONLY” healthy vending machines program made specifically for schools.
As the country’s main proponent for increasing the availability of healthy snacks and drinks through vending machines, HUMAN is able to purchase products from America’s largest healthy food manufacturers and distributors at the most affordable rates. Additionally, with hundreds of products in their catalog that cost less than one dollar, the healthy vending company can also customize product mixes to cater to Miami’s significantly Hispanic student population.
“By matching-up the correct taste profiles with snacks and drinks that are both healthy and affordable, we’re allowing healthy vending to succeed in Miami schools where it has previously failed,” states Sean Kelly, CEO of HUMAN. “We are proud to be able to provide such a valuable program, and are confident that when combined with the right education, this innovative program will help significantly slow the rate of childhood obesity in the Miami-Dade area.”
Beyond the positive effects of providing healthy snacks to students, schools can also benefit from the HUMAN School Grant Program, which provides schools up to $2,000 for installing healthy vending machines. The company also donates 10% of their proceeds to reputable charities that play a crucial role in the fight against childhood obesity. One such charity, the ‘nPlay Foundation is a coalition of professional athletes that promotes physical fitness and healthy eating habits among students nationwide. The charity is co-chaired by NBA superstar Grant Hill and softball legend Jennie Finch.
HUMAN Healthy Vending is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA. The company was founded in 2007 to Help Unite Man And Nutrition by making healthy eating more convenient via the placement of premium healthy vending machines across the globe. HUMAN gives 10% of all proceeds to charities that fight childhood obesity and malnutrition. Learn more at http://www.HealthyVending.com.
