Changing the way the World Eats

Image#CrushingIt @Forbes, #Entrepreneur @CNNMONEY. If you don’t get it, stop now, because technology, like health is no fad.

H.U.M.A.N. Helping Unite Mankind and Nutrition is a team of Social Entrepreneurs with a vision to make healthy food more convenient than junk food…and it’s working.

Founded in 2008 on a simple concept, Easy Nutrition Everywhere, the world’s first 100% healthy vending company serves healthy items to thousands of people everyday in 40 states, Canada and Puerto Rico.

Twice, named by Forbes most promising companies list, Entrepreneur top 100 most brilliant companies and how about the concept of “Farm to Vending Machine?” ~~Wow.

What’s the big goal? 10,000 machines across all 50 states by 2015 and millions of eating habits changed.

ImageEven better, HUMAN gives 10% of profits to charities that fight the causes of obesity.

Addressing the obesity problem in America and taking action is noble. Obesity is one of the most urgent health issues facing the country today and it costs more than $300 Billion per year in medical costs, reduced productivity and other disturbing factors, more important, like shattered self-esteems. Obesity has also been linked directly to cancer, diabetes, bone and joint problems, sleep apnea, stroke, osteoarthritis and cardiovascular disease.

HUMAN launched their own charity arm H.U.M.A.N. EVERYWHERE, a kid-focused charitable arm helping kids learn how to eat healthy, giving them access to healthy choices & helping them become social entrepreneurs.

Captain HUMAN, HUMAN Everywhere’s mascot, spends his time educating kids and fighting ALIENs (Attacking Life as Infectious Enemies of Nutrition) ~~wow, yes, I think I will.

ImageHUMAN Healthy Vending recently moved to a 9,000 square foot building, a one-of-a-kind, creative office space in Culver City, California. Co-Founders Sean Kelly and Andy Mackenson are transforming the new space into a hub for social entrepreneurship, nutrition activism and entrepreneurial development.

HUMAN recently was established as a B-Corporation, using business to solve social and environmental issues.
