Food Swap Network

September 25, 2013

We’ve talked about food swaps before in Save the Harvest.  It’s such a good idea, and it seems to be catching on.  Food Swap Network is a nonprofit organization that provides resources to folds looking to join or start a local food swap.  Here’s what the Food Swap website says:

“A food swap is a recurring event where members of a community share homemade, homegrown, or foraged foods with each other. Swaps allow direct trades to take place between attendees, e.g., a loaf of bread for a jar of pickles or a half-dozen backyard eggs. Swap events also include a potluck as an immediate food-sharing (and sometimes item-sampling) component. These events are a delicious way to diversify the homemade foods in your own pantry while getting to know members of your local food community.”

According to Food Swap Network there are two swaps meeting near me.  Anyone ever been to a food swap? Any stories to share? Do you think The Harvest Manager should check it out?

    You should definitely go! I went to one in New Haven with some tolerable muffins and walked away with lavender sugar, sriracha salt, homemade jam, bread, and eggs. Clearly I got the better end of the deal. : )
