HUMAN Healthy Vending Reviews: Northwest YMCA

Associate Member Services Director Gives the Scoop

When you think of a YMCA, would an unhealthy lifestyle come to mind? Absolutely not!

So why is it so many YMCAs offer junk food from vending machines?

Check out what Keith Marin has to say about his experience with healthy vending machines:

Keith Marin, Associate Member Services Director at Northwest YMCA in Cupertino, CA, knew there had to be a change. The traditional vending machines carried anything from Cheetos to Oreos. The members didn’t even like the food offered! So, when Northwest YMCA made the transition to HUMAN Healthy Vending machines, the members loved it! The first think people asked was, “why didn’t you get this in here earlier?”

The kids and members love the machine, due to its product variety and technological “coolness” of the machine. It’s a fun purchase that offers an experience behind it.

Marin places a lot of importance on teaching kids the benefits of healthy eating/healthy lifestyles. If you start teaching them early, you’re setting a good foundation for their entire life. What you put in is what you get out, so if you are eating junk food, you will only get a junk in return (physically and mentally).

Northwest YMCA is a pioneer in the healthy vending movement. With 5 million junk food machines in the country, Northwest YMCA is making a proactive decision that will benefit the lives of their members.
