Developing a Healthy Beverage Vending Agreement
A factsheet about key vending contract considerations for schools
A healthy beverage vending contract gives a school district the opportunity to control the array of products sold or advertised to students while generating much-needed revenue from the agreement. This fact sheet outlines key considerations for schools, including what to look for when soliciting a vendor, best practices to ensure a sound agreement, and ways for parents and other community members to get involved in the process.
