A food swap is a delicious way to diversify your homemade foods while getting to know like-minded people. It’s also a sustainable practice, allowing seasonal, local food to be shared and preventing food waste.
How does it work?
At a food swap, cooks, bakers, canners, growers, and foragers get together to trade their homemade and homegrown food items.
- No money changes hands. Trading, not buying, is what the food swap movement is about.
- All items must be made, foraged or grown by the participants.
- You cannot buy something in a store or at a market and bring it to a food swap to trade. You must bring something homemade or homegrown.
