In the States, Human Healthy Vending is launching a health and wellness grant programme for schools and businesses with up to $2m available through 2015. The company will give schools and businesses up to $1,000 for each junk-food-vending-machine they replace with the Human programme.
Human’s eco-friendly vending machines vend healthful food and beverage options, including locally-sourced items and fresh produce.
In addition to providing better-for-you options, Human’s programmes have a history of providing locations with significantly higher annual revenue commissions than junk-food vending machines, according to the company.
In addition to receiving up-front grant money and healthier food and drink options, locations are also ensured of receiving higher revenue commissions for the duration of their vending contract.
