What is Incredible Edible LEAP?
Incredible Edible LEAP is about making life healthier for families with children under four in Stockwell, Tulse Hill and Brixton (Coldharbour and Vassall wards). As the name suggests, it’s a partnership between Incredible Edible Lambeth and our colleagues at LEAP. We make it easier for families to get hold of healthy food, health advice and take part in fun activities and classes.
What are the benefits for my family?
If you join us, you may be able to access our free healthy food bags scheme: Incredibly Edible Bags. Our bags contain fresh local fruit and vegetables. We will also invite you to get involved in community cooking and shared meals, and take part in walks and visits to get to know the local area.
What do community meals involve?
Community meals are a great opportunity to share and enjoy the food you’ve grown or cooked. We concentrate on vegetable-based dishes and we don’t add much salt or sugar. We also use good oils such as sunflower, olive and corn oils and drink water rather than sugary drinks. It is also important to waste as little as possible and we often use surplus food.
Do you run events?
We hold lots of events and you can find them on the Incredible Edible Events page.
What must I do in return?
We will ask for your feedback on what makes it easier to feed yourself and your family healthy food. You’ll also need to become a member of Incredible Edible LEAP. Membership is free.
How can our family join in?
It’s really simple to take part and just takes a conversation. Please contact Helen on 07949 985 343 or Sue on 07961 342 247. Or you can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
