HUMAN Healthy Vending & Snack Pack { Giveaway }

I was super excited to learn about HUMAN (Helping Unite Mankind & Nutrition) Healthy Vending Machines. I am always interested in how people are making an effort to help out the health and wellbeing of our future. Human Healthy Vending is on a quest to provide healthier options in schools and businesses.

I have found myself (many times) searching for something healthy to eat after forgetting to pack a snack, especially when I worked in an office. There is always junk food around but I often crave something yummy AND healthy! I think these vending machines sound great and I wish they would replace all the “old” ones. Here is an example of some of the snacks they provide in the vending machines:

About Healthy Vending 

Founded in 2008 by social entrepreneurs Sean Kelly and Andy Mackensen, HUMAN (“Helping Unite Mankind and Nutrition”) Healthy Vending is revolutionizing the $42B vending industry. No longer do vending machines have to conjure images of energy- inefficient machines that sell junk food. Instead, HUMAN achieves its mission, “to make healthy food more convenient than junk food,” by way of its innovative, high-tech and eco-friendly vending machines that vend better-for-you foods and drinks, including fresh produce and locally-sourced products.

In addition to providing healthful food and drink options, HUMAN machines provide nutrition education via high-definition LCD screens that display streaming education- related videos and digital content.

HUMAN currently has over 1500 machines placed across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico in schools, hospitals, gyms, and government and corporate locations across the world.

HUMAN is committed to social and environmental stewardship. In January of 2013, HUMAN became the first in the vending industry to become a Certified B Corporation. Certified B Corporations meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. As a Certified B Corp, HUMAN is legally required to consider the impact of its decisions on its employees, franchisees, suppliers, community, consumers, and environment.

Additionally, HUMAN donates 10% of profits to charities that fight the causes of childhood obesity and malnutrition, with a pre-dominate recipient of those funds being HUMAN’s non-profit arm, HUMAN Everywhere. HUMAN Everywhere’s mission is to leverage the power of social entrepreneurship to improve the nation’s collective health by increasing access to nutrition education and healthful foods while advocating for public policy that contributes to these goals.

I received a snack pack from HUMAN. All opinions are my own.

    My husband actually worked in the same building where this company is at in Sorrento Valley and told me about them… we are always too busy to pack healthy snacks, which is why we have this awful habit of getting unhealthy snacks when we’re out. If there were healthy snacks more readily available, people could potentially avoid major health problems from the long term impact of junk food when they pick something from a HUMAN Healthy Vending! LOVE their whole concept!

    Oh my gosh, I have yet to see a HUMAN healthy vending machine but they should be everywhere! One of the places my kids are always trying to buy from a vending machine is at the pool in our community, the only problem is it’s ALL junk so I rarely allow it. It would be so nice grab a healthy snack!

    I absolutely hate being out and sometimes the only option for a snack is a gross bag of processed “chips”. These new vending machines would be awesome.

    Healthy snacks are sometimes hard to search out and discover – nice to have another resource.

    It would be great to have healthy snacks readily available.
