Will all vending machines within the Prince George's County Department of Parks and Recreation meet the Healthy Vending Standards?

Yes. We are transitioning machines, and when completed, all Prince George's County Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) facilities will have machines with healthier snack and beverage options. There are, however, a few facilities that we do not own, buy may host our programs. While their vending machines may not adhere to the policy, we are hopeful that they will support our efforts.
