Valley beverage distributor Steve Nickolas launches Healthy Food Project

I'd like to share a really neat project one of my good friends, Steve Nickolas, recently launched, the Healthy Food Project. Steve Nickolas, a 35-year veteran of the beverage and food science industries, started this project in order to provide better food to schoolchildren. 90% of the food we eat currently is processed, and too much of it is being fed to our kids. Steve is working with local Valley schools to see that the food being served contains significant nutritional value. Better diets will reduce the obesity epidemic and the spike in diabetes 2.

Steve has founded and developed multiple beverage companies, and in 1998, became the first bottled water company licensed by all major Hollywood studios, including Sony, Universal, Disney, DreamWorks, Warner Brothers and Marvel Comics. Between 1981 and 1990 he developed bottled water companies globally including in Hawaii, Micronesia, Indonesia, Philippines, Israel, Egypt and Germany as well as several companies in North America.

Watch his interview with ABC-15 below.
