The article focuses on the testing of a vending machine at Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District in Houston, Texas, as part of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The first machine was tested in Windfern High School, which has 300 students who eat at the nearby middle school since there is no cafeteria in the high school. In December 2007, Cypress Falls High School is scheduled to install a similar machine next to the milk vending machine in the cafeteria.
