Nottingham introduces a vending machine for rough sleepers…
Action Hunger has launched a 24/7 vending machine in a Nottingham shopping centre that dispenses essentials like food, water, warm clothes, sanitary products and books. The world first machine is exclusively for those in need and users can access up to three items a day from it using a special keycard. The food comes from redistribution organisations hoping to reduce food waste and the other items are bought with donations. The creator has had support from Google and Uber and is hoping to have 25-30 machines in use by the end of 2018.
Creating real hope for the homeless.
