Meet Your Local Healthy Snacking Experts:
Derek and Heather Yoder
Why we decided to join the HUMAN team?
We believe that one of the biggest problems in the US is the way we eat. The American diet of highly processed sugars and chemically altered foods negatively affects everything we do! This has caused a disease epidemic, which includes Obesity, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Arthritis, and many more. My wife was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at age 23. The doctor said there was nothing we could do and prescribed drugs and a Cortisone shot every six weeks! After much research, we decided instead to change our diets to organic and raw foods. The amazing change in our bodies, skin, mental clearness and energy levels was just icing on the cake because my wife has not had a Cortisone shot or pain in five years! We’ve identified that the biggest obstacle towards eating better is access. We believe that with HUMAN, we can make healthy food more accessible than junk food!
What we like most about being a social entrepreneur in our community?
We didn’t want to start a business just to make money. We wanted a passion and cause behind our business to give us a reason to exist. For us it is twofold: to fight the obesity epidemic in our country, and second, to give back to our community around us. We believe that God blesses us so that we can bless others. We are committed to giving back a large percentage of our profits to an ever-growing collection of local, non-profit organizations, homeless shelters, local community programs, and our church. We love being able to educate and be activists for healthy eating but also improve our community at the same time! We believe this is our calling in the Akron/Canton area.
What makes us the best vending service in Uniontown, OH?
What sets us apart from a traditional vending operator is that our mission is much more than just filling vending machines.

This passion leads to a desire to deliver “wow” service at every location, achieve complete customer satisfaction, and answer our customers needs through taste testing events, health education, and participating in community programs. We are not just vending operators, we are social entrepreneurs Helping to Unite Mankind And Nutrition!
