Pitch 1 | Healthy Vending
As Quinnipiac continues to make efforts in becoming a healthier community, one thing remains unchanged – the vending machine options.
Vending machines are for convenience. With the busy schedules of our students, faculty and staff, sometimes a vending machine is the quickest
option for a snack between classes or meetings. Or, we simply need a mid-day snack and don’t feel like waiting in the cafe. Or maybe the cafe is closed. Either way, the vending machines are frequently used on campus.
With more people concerned about their health (and their figure), they are being conscientious about what they put in their bodies. Our current vending machines consist of drinks and snacks that are high in sugars, fats and carbohydrates.
I am proposing that Quinnipiac switch out their current vending machines for healthy ones. These machines will include snacks that are lower in sugar and carbs, and higher in protein and fibers. These healthy snacks would benefit the students, faculty and staff at Quinnipiac because the snacks will consist of vitamins and protein, which help with better energy levels.
The machines will have bright, attractive graphics, and will have a touchscreen display for ordering. You will be able to click on any item and see the nutritional information. There will be multiple payment options including the Q-Card.
Let’s make healthy food convenient and promote a healthy lifestyle for our Quinnipiac community!
