First Free Vending Machine Provides Essentials For The Homeless

Nottingham charity ‘Action Hunger’ unveiled a vending machine for homeless, which would provide them 24-hour access to food and clothing.

The vending machine is activated by a key card, distributed to homeless people by one of the charity’s partner organisations, The Friary. Three items can be collected a day and 100 key cards will be handed out initially.

The charity plans to set up a second machine in Manchester in January 2018 and the expansion plans include London, Seattle, Los Angeles and New York.
