SL-Tech Helps You Do It All With State-of-the-Art Vending Solutions
Active students with busy school schedules require convenient access and fast service of nutritious school meals and healthy snacks. These busy schedules sometimes make it difficult to serve breakfast and lunch to every student in the time allotted. SL-Tech's Healthy Vending Solutions make it possible to extend the hours, and the reach, of your cafeteria. Our vending programs allow you to provide students with a wide range of nourishing, reimbursable meals and à la carte items, and still adhere to all federal school meal requirements and your district's wellness policy.
SL-Tech's Healthy Vending Program provides the technology to retrofit existing vending machines to link to WebSMARTT for reporting and management. Students can access their meal accounts via PIN, ID card or touchpad scan, allowing the machines to capture all relevant accountability data.
Placing the machines in your school's common areas puts nutritious meal options directly in front of the students. They can easily access healthy, reimbursable meals and snacks, which increases participation, expands revenue opportunities and keeps more students on-campus.
SL-Tech offers vending solutions to meet the needs of school districts of all sizes. All the elements fit together seamlessly—from food packaging to reporting to the vending machine itself.

Reimbursable Meal Vending
SL-Tech's Reimbursable Meal Vending is a turnkey vending solution that offers an additional means of capturing reimbursable meals and à la carte sales. SL-Tech has partnered with USelectIt (USI) to create a comprehensive system that includes the vending machine, software, Nutrient Standard Menu Planning (NSMP) and food-based menus for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. The hardware and software work in tandem, communicating and collecting data in real time, providing convenience, ease, and the data you need to manage your operation. Students can select items individually or from customizable express meals with a single-key entry. Standards and step-by-step training materials simplify program implementation. Now you can add vending locations around campus to extend hours of operation—reducing labor costs and generating incremental revenue growth.
Advantages of the Healthy Vending Solution:

- Includes marketing materials to effectively promote the vending program
- Reduces costs with NSMP
