UK experiments with vending machines for homeless people

NOTTINGHAM, U.K. – In an initiative aimed at making the lives of homeless people in the U.K. a little simple, the country hosted the world’s first vending machine for rough sleepers. The vending machine, hosted at the Nottingham shopping centre carries free food and other essentials for those with a special keycard.

It contains essentials for rough sleepers and the inventor is hoping to put one in every city with a homelessness problem.

On Tuesday, the machine was unveiled at the Intu shopping centre in Broadmarsh and dispenses water, fresh fruit, energy bars, crisps, chocolate and sandwiches, as well as socks, sanitary towels, antibacterial lotion, toothbrush and toothpaste packs, and books.
