“We have TRIPLED our revenue. It helps our students perform better. I love it.”

Our Mission In Schools

Increase school revenue while helping students eat healthy

Children consume up to 2/3 of their daily food intake at school, which means that what children eat at school potentially has more impact on their health than what they eat at home.

Schools have a huge opportunity and responsibility to create a culture of wellness and we do everything in our power to make this as seamless and hassle-free as possible for schools.

If you are a Superintendent, Principal, or School Administrator, HUMAN is your one-stop provider for healthy vending, competitive foods (a la carte lunch lines, school stores), and fundraising.

Whether it’s through the integration of our award-winning healthy vending machine program, the sourcing of healthier products for your student stores and a la carte lines, or through fundraising, HUMAN can work with you to ensure your competitive food and beverage options are healthful, meet all federal mandates, taste delicious, and generate revenue for your school.

HUMAN takes away the hassle and headache and leaves you with a self-sustaining program that benefits your student body, faculty, and your budget!

How It Works

How The HUMAN Healthy Vending Program Works

1. HUMAN works directly with you to determine your school’s healthy vending, competitive foods, and fundraising needs.  We determine together the best approach for your school or district. HUMAN takes care of your customized product mix, on-machine digital content, USDA compliance under the Smart Snacks In School rule, and the entire program management.

2. HUMAN works with your administration, student groups, and nutrition team to kick-off a wellness & marketing campaign centered around the launch of the program.

3. Your professional HUMAN operator installs your healthy vending machines, sets up delivery for competitive food offerings, and kicks off your program with a bang!

4. Your school receives commissions on all product sales and digital advertising revenue generated by the machines.  If you opt-in to the SnackNation Fundraising Opportunity, your school receives additional funds.

5. Your students become healthier, happier and better performing and your school earns higher revenues compared to traditional junk food vending programs.

“I feel as though the vendor cares for my school. To have twice the money to fund my programs in addition to the improved customer service HUMAN provides. If it had taken me a year it still would have been worth it! We have doubled our vending commissions”

- Sarah Smoot, Principal, Irvington High School

New Federal Legislation Bans “Junk Food” Vending In Schools

Superintendents, Principals, and School Administrators in over 100,000 schools nationwide scramble to find a profitable “healthy vending” solution before incurring steep fines and loss of Competitive Foods revenue under new USDA “Smart Snacks In School” rules. This is big!

If your school relies on Federal funding from the National School Lunch Program, you have until July 2014 to figure out how you’re going to replace your school’s lost vending revenue AND avoid big fines for non-compliance of the USDA’s “Smart Snacks In School” rule, which bans “junk food” vending in schools starting in July 1, 2014.

The USDA has finally clamped down on the junk food that has been available to your students and this is a big deal. Here’s why…

The USDA’s Tighter “Smart Snacks In School” Rules Mean:

  • Potential severe drops in vending and competitive foods revenue
  • FINES or loss of fedral funding if you don’t meet the guidelines
  • Increased policing and enforcement of the new standards (annoying too)
  • Far less food options for your students
  • A hassle for you to figure out the right healthy vending program to replace your current program

The Importance of Adhering to
Smart Snacks In School


“The evidence is increasingly clear that the foods sold to children in schools affect their health. We conducted a health impact assessment to explore this very question: What would be the impact of updating the standards for snack and a la carte foods in schools?  The overwhelming conclusion was that setting standards for these foods could greatly reduce children’s risk of chronic disease. Research published since then further reinforces that conclusion. For instance, one recent study showed that students living in states with strong nutrition standards gained less weight over a three-year period than those in states with weaker guidelines.”

Jessica Donze Black, Director of the Kids’ Safe & Healthful Foods Project
