HUMAN Healthy Vending for YMCAs




The HUMAN Healthy Vending Program for YMCAs


Our Mission in YMCAs

HUMAN Healthy Vending is working hand-in-hand with YMCAs across the country to provide healthier snack options to its patrons. Currently, HUMAN is in over 70 YMCA branches across the nation and expects to expand rapidly based on its recent selection by the YMCA of the USA to serve as its preferred vendor for healthy vending machines in YMCAs across the country. Unlike many costly health and wellness initiatives, the HUMAN Healthy Vending program is free to YMCAs and adds no additional costs to existing program budgets. In fact, it can add revenue to the YMCA via higher commissions than its existing vending supplier.

HUMAN Healthy Vending machines come equipped with 23″ digital LCD screens that display nutritional and product information. It encourages both children and workers at YMCAs to see the benefits of the snacks they are putting in their mouths, and even may encourage them to read food labels. So, kick those junk food vending machines to the curb and KEEP your existing commissions. With healthy vending, it’s a win-win.

What this means for YMCA branches across the country:

HUMAN Franchisees provide a proven, comprehensive and dependable healthy vending program for your local Y communities. In addition, YMCAs will have the comfort of the following three worry-free guarantees:

1) Higher commission revenue compared to their existing vending solution
2) Energy savings compared to traditional vending equipment
3) Wellness grants for every machine placed inside their locations

This agreement between HUMAN and the YMCA of the USA will help ensures that children and their families in Y childcare programs have access to healthful snacks and beverages.

HUMAN Healthy Vending Inks Deal With YMCA of The USA To Provide Healthier Snacks

“We are incredibly proud to be working with YMCA of the USA. They do so much to improve people’s health and well being and we’re happy to be a part of their continual progress and innovation when it comes to achieving their mission,” - Sean Kelly, CEO and co-founder


Why does this matter?

Childcare providers play a huge role in shaping the way children eat, play and live. With 15 percent of preschool children receiving primary care from relatives, most preschoolers are placed in center-based care (e.g., child-care centers, preschools, Head Start programs) or a family child-care home. As of now, regulations regarding nutrition and physical activity practices in child-care settings are limited and vary widely among and within U.S. states (the regulation of formal child-care settings primarily occurs at the state level though Head Start programs, which are subject to federal performance standards).

This agreement between HUMAN and YMCA of the USA ensures that children and their families have access to healthy snacks and beverages.

YMCA’s with a HUMAN Healthy Vending program will gain:
1) Healthier food and beverage options for children and families
2) Energy savings compared to traditional vending equipment
3) Wellness grants for every machine placed inside of their locations

Watch Testimonials from YMCA Administrators

 
“Just the machine itself, how can you not go to it? I like it. I was excited when I saw it for the first time; I really was. And a good price. There’s nothing like eating healthy and having a good price” – Patron of YMCA, Santa Monica, CA

“Everyone’s talking about the health care crisis – the YMCA is an organization that’s doing something about it. It’s all about eating better & moving, and so, the wonderful partnership with HUMAN Healthy Vending is, it’s small changes – it’s not giving something up and not eating things – it’s just making smarter choices most of the time. So we’re delighted to be able to bring that to the forefront and show people how to try new ideas, how to eat organic – rather than a snickers today try something different.” - Sandy Morander, CEO & President, YMCA of San Antonio

“We’ve made a decision that we’re going to stand for Healthy Living, for Social Responsibility and for Youth Development, and if you’re going to stand for those things, then you have to align your goals and align your partnerships and align the things that you’re doing to promote those things in the community. And when you partner with a group like HUMAN for example that doesn’t just throw around words but they actually really do believe in family, about fun, about nutrition, about health. I mean, all those things align with what we’re trying to do and what we’re trying to promote within the community. ” - David Fish, Member engagement director, Bellevue Family YMCA, Nashville Tennesse

“If you are looking for a change, for a company that seems to model the same beliefs that we’re trying to as YMCAs then it’s about relationships and I’ve found it very easy to work with the folks from HUMAN and to provide that. There is a commission back that we receive which is always nice, we are a not for profit so to be able to put back in to our programs to serve less fortunate is always a key point. It really is going well and the parents that I’ve talked to make the statement of “Oh, we have that at home” or “we eat that,” it goes a long way to knowing that I made the right choices when we sat down with HUMAN Healthy Vending to put the products in there. It was a great partnership to be able to have some say as to what’s in your machine, versus it’s just stocked one way, whether you want it or not.” - David Stryjewski, Executive Director, Sumner County YMCA

The big goal? 10,000 machines across all 50 States by 2015, and millions of eating habits changed.

Our team is comprised of top 1%, passionate, fun, work-hard-play-hard individuals who love to get it done.And our company was just named one of Forbes Magazine’s “America’s Most Promising Companies” and Entrepreneur Magazine’s “100 Brilliant Companies” of 2011. We’re also on pace to make the Inc. 500 ”Fastest Growing Companies” list next year.

At HUMAN, we give 10% of our profits to charities that fight the causes of obesity…

…because President Obama has called the obesity epidemic, “One of the most urgent health issues facing the Country,” and it costs us over $300B per year in medical costs, reduced productivity, and other disturbing factors (including millions of shattered self-esteems, especially in kids).

Obesity has also been linked directly to cancer, diabetes, bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, stroke, osteoarthritis, and cardiovascular disease.

Wow.
