Founded in 2009, LEAP strives to nurture equitable food and farming systems that prioritize health and abundance. LEAP programs include two farmers markets, a mobile market, a farm share, a commercial kitchen, three community gardens, and robust nutrition incentive programs. LEAP will open a retail store in 2024.

LEAP is fiscal sponsor for Roanoke Foodshed Network, a community of partners working together on initiatives that promote farmers, food access, and local food systems. LEAP is also the fiscal sponsor for Virginia Fresh Match, a statewide network of farmers markets and community food stores that make fruits and vegetables more affordable for SNAP participants.
