School Food and Wellness Group

The following article was written by a national school lunch agency and spotlights our wonderful iLEAD Schools food service teams and volunteers. At iLEAD Lancaster, we are so proud of and so grateful to Brandy Leopard, Melissa Perez, and Marissa Martinez for all they have done for our families during this challenging time. 

All of us here at School Food and Wellness Group hope you are staying safe and healthy during these unusual times. In the midst of all the craziness going on in the world, we have seen our schools and food vendors go above and beyond to make sure students all over the country have access to meals. We know these are unprecedented times, and we are in awe of everyone’s efforts and hard work to ensure these families have access to food. Thank you from our team to yours!
