I am a physician and have seen a dramatic increase in diabetes, obesity, and hypertension in my patients. I believe that poor eating habits play a big role in these preventable conditions. I want to be a part of the solution.

Jeff and Sandy Osbourne, parents to three teenagers, have partnered with HUMAN Healthy Vending – the nation’s leading franchisor of healthy vending businesses – to ensure that the greater Milwaukee community has convenient access to healthful foods and beverages.

Currently, the Osbournes have placed HUMAN Healthy Vending machines in Hartland and surrounding areas at Mukwonago High School, West Allis Central High School, Nathan Hale High School, Lincoln Middle School, and Arrowhead Union High School.

Jeff Osbourne is a physician, specializing in podiatry, and has been servicing the Milwaukee area for the past 20 years.

“I am a physician and have seen a dramatic increase in diabetes, obesity, and hypertension in my patients. I believe that poor eating habits play a big role in these preventable conditions,” said Jeff. “I want to be a part of the solution and provide greater access to healthful, affordable and convenient foods.”

The Osbournes’ healthy vending machines in schools provide wholesome snacks that are a better alternative to the foods and drinks typically found in vending machines.

With the USDA’s recent proposal to improve the nutritional quality of snack foods sold in school vending machines, a la carte and in student stores (a.k.a. “competitive foods”), schools across the nation will be turning to healthy vending to assist them with compliance and improved student performance. The Osbournes are positioned to provide schools with a product mix that meets the impending guidelines so that schools may painlessly make the transition.

At a time when the nation is experiencing a healthcare crisis and rising rates of chronic and, largely preventable, diseases, the Osbournes are proud to be a part of the solution.

Interviews, Photo & Video Opportunities

The Osbournes are available for phone and video interviews and can coordinate interviews with owners and/or management at their machines’ locations. Photos, as well as video footage, of HUMAN Healthy Vending machines are immediately available upon request. The Osbournes may be reached at jeff.osbourne(at)healthyvending(dot)com.
