From farm to – vending machine? New concept hitting Chicago
When you think of vending machines you think of chips, candy, soft drinks – nothing healthy comes to mind. Now, a new company is changing that called Farmers Fridge.
The machines, or kiosk as founder Luke Saunders calls it, is packed full of health meals and snacks, made fresh daily.
A touch screen walks you through the ordering process. Buyers pick one of five vegetarian salads – two of them are vegan options or add a protein, like chicken or tuna.
The meals are dispensed in a recyclable plastic mason jar complete with salad dressing and under 500 calories.
Two new options are rotated in every week to keep the menu as fresh as the food that’s restocked every morning. The unsold items are taken daily to an area foodbank.
Salads will run you $8 dollars. The daily special is $7. Breakfast and snacks are $4.25 and the protein add-ons are two dollars..
Farmers fridge just launched in the Garvey Food Court at Clark and Lake two weeks.
