Seeking Local Farm Food for Conference

We are excited to once again be working with the Executive Chefs at The Hotel Roanoke along with the LEAP Food Hub in Roanoke, VA to procure as much local farm food for our 2022 Conference as possible.

Please reach out to Kelly at kelly@leapforlocalfood.org and Lindsay at coordinator@vabf.org and let us know what you will have available in January 2022. While we are still finalizing the Conference meal menus, we can incorporate most meat, vegetables, fruit, grains, and value added products to our menus. Help us feed 400+ hungry Conference attendees in January of 2022!

Please email us if you’re interested in providing food for the Conference and include type, quantity, price, and farm location. VABF members will be given priority in purchasing. Thank you!
