We can all agree that the traditional vending machines are laden with mostly high fats, sugar, sodium foods. These foods eaten overtime can lead to chronic diseases that shortens one’s life.

Thankfully, there’s a solution. You see, a manufacturer turned foodie by the name of Luke Saunders came up with the amazing concept. He developed Farmer’s Fridge, a vending machine that offers an assortment of healthy options. Farmer’s Fridge consists of kale/lettuce salads, veggie/hummus, Greek yogurt/berries, tomatoes, corn on the cob, and many other wholesome foods.

The foods are packed in recyclable plastic containers that retain freshness. Therefore, there is no likelihood of obtaining wilted lettuce or kale. Moreover, the great thing about it is that anything that’s not sold at the end of the day is donated to food pantries within the locale.

So far, Farmer’s Fridge is only within the Chicago area at 20 sites. They are situated at offices, universities, apartment buildings and offices. Mr. Saunders hopes to expand and take this innovative idea on the national scale by the end of the calendar year.

I believe that’s an exciting piece of news. Far too long the market has been saturated with high calorie foods in the vending machines. And, one good way to keep track of the Saunder’s work is to check out One just might be heading your area soon. I for one cannot wait.Yippee!
