A new company has recently launched with a mission to provide healthy vending machine choices. Healthier Vending NW provides, stocks and services healthy vending machines to qualifying businesses and community organizations from Seattle to Bellingham, all at no charge to the business. 

“The machines come stocked with healthy snacks and beverages, delicious alternatives to what the majority of traditional vending machines offer and exactly what health-conscious consumers are looking for,” says founder Laurie Albrecht. “Healthier Vending NW also donates a portion of the sales from each machine to local non-profits that assist with food security, such as your neighborhood food bank, or improving childhood nutrition.”

Albrecht says the mission of the business is “creating healthier communities one snack at a time, and notes there is no other company providing the same sort of healthy vending service in the Puget Sound area.  The vending machines are provided at no cost to qualifying businesses, although there are a limited number of machines available. The company is currently reviewing requests for machines in King, Snohomish and Skagit counties. “Together we can improve the nutrition and health of our local communities by providing better access to healthier choices,” Albrecht finishes.
