Don’t know what a food swap is? If you like food and enjoy cooking, gardening or raise animals and use their products--such as eggs, fleece, milk or meat--then a food swap is for you. It’s fun and a great way to expand your pantry.
Members of a swap are from a local/regional community and bring items that they’ve made or grown themselves and swap them for items others have brought. There are no dues or fees, but donations are welcome to offset expenses such as printing flyers, space rental and incidentals. An RSVP is required using http://ubcfoodswap.eventbrite.com/ and limited to only 36.
Participants fill out a form with the name of their item, what’s in it and how to utilize it in a recipe, or out of the jar/package. Then folks wander around and see what others have to offer and sign up what you’re willing to swap for what you’d like to get from someone else. There is nothing written in stone and negotiations are encouraged and part of the fun.
At a swap, the group members bring their swap items and some samples, but also a potluck item to share if they’d like. Check out www.foodswapnetwork.com for further details on food swaps.
The Upper Bucks Food Swap will be held at 1:30 P.M. in Kintnersville. Information and directions can be found at http://ubcfoodswap.eventbrite.com/ Registration is necessary for entrance, since this is a private home.
