LEAP’s mission is to nurture healthy communities and resilient local food systems. If you appreciate the work LEAP has done so far and are excited about all of the good work LEAP has in store for 2019 and beyond, please consider giving LEAP a tax-deductible donation to support our programs. Every contribution we receive is an investment in our community and our food system. Here are some examples of what your investment can do:

  • $10: sponsors a Healthy Start voucher for the low-income parent of a young child (5 and under), redeemable for $10 worth of fresh, local food.
  • $20: sponsors the SNAP Double Value Program match for one family for one week. That means an extra $20 in fresh, local, healthy fruits and vegetables for a low-income family, and it also means an extra $20 to our local farmers and food producers.
  • $50: sponsors a cooking demonstration at one of our markets, providing fresh ideas for how to cook the amazing produce you can find there.
  • $100: sponsors the operation of our Mobile Market for one day, providing access to fresh, healthy food to three Roanoke neighborhoods that lack easy access to grocery stores.
  • $250: sponsors the operation of one of our farmers markets for one week, giving you a place to shop and our farmers and food producers a place to sell their local products!
  • $500: sponsors the operation of both the Grandin Village Farmers Market and the West End Farmers Market for one week.
  • $1000: sponsors the SNAP Double Value Program match for one family for a year.

Your donation is an investment in our community’s future–a future where our neighborhoods are healthier, our farmers have strong local markets to sell their products, and we are all enjoying local food on our tables all year long.
