Veg-Friendly Vending Machines

A Pennsylvania hospital introduces vending machines with a vegan-friendly take on grab-and-go snacks.

Vending machines geared toward vegan, gluten-free, and organic diets could be coming to a hallway near you. Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Penn., recently introduced high-tech (and eco-friendly) 2bU snack dispensers that offer more conscientious counterparts to the typical junk food selection. Buyers looking for a quick bite can use an electronic screen to peruse nutrition facts for a medley of wholesome items, all of which are low-sodium, sans trans-fats, and 250 calories or less. The machines feature items like vegan apple cinnamon bars, salted almonds, and coconut water, and may appear in more locations if consumers respond positively.
