    Hi There! We just wanted to point out (because we are really proud of it!) that LunchSkins were the idea of 3 stay at home moms. We’ve grown into support team of 8 moms who all work remotely from home. Our team of screeners and sewers in Pennsylvania are also all mostly moms!! We may look corporate, but are true to our home-grown roots.
