Public Input

The Roanoke Valley Local Food Plan used a three part approach to initial public input. We surveyed farmers (and used LEAP for Local Food’s Farmer Listening Sessions) to get the farmer perspective. We surveyed consumers online and in person around the Valley. And we reached out directly to stakeholders working actively in the food system such as restaurants, nonprofits, and educators to get their perspective on what we can do to improve the local food system. For any questions, please email Amanda McGee at
