LEAP WAnts healthy food for all

Along with our partners, LEAP works to make sure healthy food is accessible and
affordable for everyone. See below to learn how LEAP is helping grow healthy communities.



SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is a USDA program (formerly known as food stamps) that provides assistance to low-income families and individuals. All LEAP markets accept SNAP benefits. Thanks to funding and support from Virginia Fresh Match, LEAP markets also double SNAP benefits.

Just as SNAP recipients can double the value of their purchases, Medicaid & WIC members can also buy twice as many vegetables and fruits at LEAP's Grandin Village Farmers Market, West End Farmers Market, and at all LEAP Mobile Market stops.
