Fresh Healthy Vending

December 9th, 2010

The Chambersburg YMCA is happy to announce the arrival of a new Fresh Healthy Vending machine!  The new machine, located in our Teen Room, is part of our plan to continue to bring nutritional choices to encourage healthy living with our members. 

Some of the new products include:

-          Kettle Foods kettle chips

-          Stacy’s pita chips

-          Back to Nature cookies and crackers

-          The Switch sparkling juice

-          Hansen’s Beverages

Fresh Healthy Vending’s mission is to provide consumers with fresh healthy snacks and drinks as an alternative to typical foods and drinks found in traditional vending machines.

The Y hopes you will take advantage of these new, healthy offerings.  For more information, please contact Barb Houpt, Wellness and Fitness Director.
