Incredible Edible LEAP is about making life healthier for families with children under four in Stockwell, Tulse Hill and Brixton (Coldharbour and Vassall wards).
IE LEAP is a project of the Healthy Living Platform. It’s a partnership between us 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?
Join us and you could 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.
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 IE LEAP. Membership is free.
Do you run events?
We hold lots of events and you can find them on our newsletter, so make sure you sign up! Also, keep an eye on the Healthy Living Platform Events page for other workshops, meetings, and social events.
Inspire me with great recipes!
We have a selection of recipes to get you started, with more coming soon.
How do I join?
It’s really simple and just takes a conversation!

IE LEAP’s Vision
LEAP has an ambitious ten year programme aimed at improving the lives of children through radically changing the way that we work with pregnant mothers, fathers, babies, their families and communities. The LEAP communities of Stockwell, Coldharbour, Vassall and Tulse Hill are some of the most diverse in the country. Our vision is for Lambeth to be the best place in the world for children to be born and grow up and we will accept no less than for all of our children to be healthy, happy, confident, safe and able to achieve their aspirations.
