School Vending Services

Vending in Schools Can Be a Good Thing.  Berkshire Food Provides Vending Solutions for Schools and Universities Across Connecticut.  Whether Your Focus is Healthy Eating or Convenience, We Can Work with You.

Improve Your Bottom Line

  • A well-managed vending program can lower your overhead and generate revenues via commissions*.

Increase Control

  • Vending can be a healthy eating alternative.  A well-managed vending program can reinforce school food policies/ guidelines**, reduce cafeteria lines, and keep students on-site by satisfying their food and beverage needs.

Optimize Convenience for Students and Staff

  • A well-managed vending program can ensure 24/7 product availability and, in essence, “Grab and Go” service for busy students and staff.

**Vending machines can be configured to offer only products that meet CT healthy standards.
