ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) — Two Rapides Parish high schools will have vending machines with healthier snacks this school year.

The Town Talk reports that Pineville High School will replace four snack vending machines with one supplied by a new company called Cenla Healthy Vending.

Bolton High School principal Misty Slayter says the new machine will supplement a concession program run by the school's business department.

Cenla Healthy Vending is owned by Graves and Anna Theus. They say they were frustrated by the lack of healthy choices, and learned about a California company called Helping Unite Man And Nutrition. Cenla Healthy Vending is a franchise of that company.
