Hi everyone, my name is Melanie and I’m the new food service director for Chicopee Public Schools. I’m so excited to be a part of the ChicopeeFRESH team and I can’t wait to continue providing our students with well-balanced meals and fresh, local foods. I grew up here in Chicopee so the hometown connection is strong, and I’m so proud of how far our school food service program has already come. I’m a registered dietitian and was lucky enough to be placed here during my dietetic internship, where I got to learn the nuts and bolts of the farm to school program. I’m also a mom to twin 6 year olds, so I’m looking forward to sharing my love of nutrition with the kids of Chicopee.
We're thrilled to have Melanie on the team. Right now she is working on bringing Breakfast After the Bell to all Chicopee schools. Check her out talking to 22 News about breakfast here!
