Sacramento Backs Off Effort To Increase Healthy Food Options in Vending Machines
On Thursday, the Sacramento City Council voted to approve a new vending machine vendor contract that does not include a requirement to stock 50% of city-owned machines with healthy beverages and snacks. The council backed off its requirement after vendors said it would not be economically feasible to stock half of the machines with healthy options.
