Graduate Spotlight: L-S grad operating a food truck visits high school FCS classes

Graduate Spotlight
Matt Marafioti graduated from Lampeter-Strasburg in 2007. Since May 2015, Marafioti has been operating Mara-Leo's Italian Food Truck. His food truck serves a select menu of specialty Italian foods. In last year's Celebrate Lancaster, Mara-Leo's was even voted #1 Food Truck. He's even appeared on TLC's Kate Plus 8 TV Show Season 5, Episode 1 "Sextuplets Turn 12."


Today from 7:45 am until 1:45 pm Marafioti is visiting the high school as a guest speaker in Mrs. Cathy Lynch's family and consumer science courses. As an added bonus, he's brought his food truck!

Nationally, owning a food truck is a popular trend. In fact, new food trucks are regularly popping up all over Lancaster County. As exciting as the lifestyle appears, it's a lot of hard work. However, for Marafioti its a labor of love.

He will be talking to the tenth graders about how he got started as a food truck driver, what he does, and all the work it takes to complete the licensing to operate a food truck.
