GRALAND COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL
Bev Schnapps, Principal
We decided to try snacks again (instead of just juice and water) after parents complained a few years ago – we thought healthy options would be a better option. We were given the run-around for months with our previous vendor so choosing a new supplier seemed simple and easy as far as getting the healthy snacks we wanted.
The new healthy products have been received exceptionally well. We love the fact that whenever there’s a problem with the machine, it’s sorted out ASAP as the new machines feature remote monitoring technology. The response from students and faculty has been great!
CALVARY CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Darlene Morrison, Business Manager
Ormond Beach, FL
Darlene Morrison, Business Manager at Calvary Christian Academy in Ormond Beach, says that parents have been especially enthusiastic supporters of healthier snack vending — though students were in some cases initially dubious. “They tended at first to just ogle the unfamiliar snack labels in the new machine,” says Morrison. “It wasn’t until we organized a free taste test for a student delegation that the organic food concept really got their full attention. Now it’s become the latest mega hit!”

Carl Martinez, Assistant Principal
Yorba Linda, CA
Orange County’s Heritage Oak Private School and Whittier Christian High School have each recently made the switch to Healthy Vending. “I’m impressed both with the student response to natural and organic snack foods and with the resultant revenues for our school,” says Carl Martinez, Assistant Principal at Whittier Christian High School. “We’ve seen equal or better monthly income from the new machines, and these funds find excellent uses in an educationally active setting like ours.”
ALBERT EINSTEIN ACADEMIES
David Sciaretta, Middle School Princiapl
San Diego, CA
“We are not seeing the Cheetos, the soda, the energy drinks, those products we’re trying to get rid of. We don’t have to mandate that they not happen. This is really taken the place of those other products. This has been really successful for us, as well as the student body,” said Middle School Principal David Sciaretta.

WEST HILLS CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Mike Cardinalli, Junior High Principal
Mike Cardinalli, Junior High Principal at West Hills Christian School in Portland, agrees that Christopherson was in the right place at the right time. “We were open to new fund raising ideas to help with our academic programs, and Aaron’s solution came with a recognizable nutritional benefit for our children that we are very much on board with.”

Boynton Beach, FL
AVIARA OAKS MIDDLE SCHOOL
We have had our machine up and running at Aviara Oaks Middle School for a couple of months now and have been very impressed with the quality of service, our students’ response to the products, and the profit share that we receive. It is great to be able to supplement the food that our cafeteria offers with the alternative healthy snack choices. The machine is always clean and well tended. We are very happy with the program and highly recommend it to any schools looking to shift the eating habits in a healthier direction!
BEAVER COUNTRY DAY SCHOOL
Tim Parson, Director of Finance & Operations
Chestnut Hill, MA
Our first FHV machine, in our gym lobby, was a big success, so we recently added a second machine in our student lounge. Students, parents and staff have been drawn to the range of snacks and drinks, which are nutritionally better and more “upscale” than vending options previously offered. The machines work very well, taking debit and credit cards in addition to cash, and transmitting inventory data so products can be promptly re-stocked. Finally, all the FHV people that we have dealt with have been professional, friendly and helpful.
THE PEDDIE SCHOOL
Robin Gerber, Assistant Athletic Trainer
We have had a very positive response to our Fresh Healthy Vending machines as evidenced by the sales. When we are busy in the Athletic Center the machines are busy.
The machines are very reliable and if there is a problem Michael Bloome takes care of it before we even know there was a problem.
Michael communicates on a biweekly basis. His statements and checks arrive the same time every month. Never have to call him.
We decided to change to the Fresh Healthy system because it is in line with the direction the school is taking in terms of nutrition and it goes along with the schools Strategic Vision.
This has been a win/win situation for us and I would highly recommend these machines to anyone who is looking for this kind of product!
