Terry Evans of YEGMax! Says: “Since we put the machine in Cuts, I’ve had to go back every day to restock it,” said St. Albert resident and K-97 radio host Terry Evans, whose company, YEGMax! Canadian Healthy Vending Machines, owns and operates the machine. W.D. Cuts principal Mike Tod said that, so far, students have really taken to the machine. “The kids are using the machine a lot,” he said, noting that it is currently the only vending machine on campus. “Even though it’s a healthy choice, when you give them more choices — and these are healthy ones — they take advantage of it.” There is even a QR code on the machine that students can scan to suggest new items. While W.D. Cuts is the first school to have a Max! Machine, Evans said he has installed about 10 others in businesses throughout Edmonton since January. – St. Albert Leader
