Boston Food Swap - January Event
Sunday, January 26, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (EST)
Our January Swap coincides with National Soup Swap Day! We encourage soup swapping, but please make sure all soups are packaged for transport. We do have access to a microwave for warming samples.
All swap items must be homemade, homegrown, or foraged by you. Think baked goods, jam, pickles, spreads, honey, vinegar, granola, pasta, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, homemade sausages, backyard eggs, home brews … you name it! Bring as little or as much as you like. You can bring a bunch of one thing or multiples of a few different things. The possibilities are endless!
Keep in mind that swappers will be examining and picking up your goods, so be sure to package them in a way that protects the food and makes it clear the amounts you want to swap. We encourage reusable, earth-friendly packaging whenever possible.
If possible, you should also bring samples for others to try.
2:00pm - 3:00pm People arrive, set up their items, chat with other swappers, and sample the goods
3:00pm - 3:30pm Bidding begins
3:30pm - 4:00pm Swapping begins
4:00pm - 5:00pm Social time and clean up
Please arrive no later than 3pm!
Join us at Collaboratory on the mezzanine balcony of the 40 Berkeley St hostel.

When & Where
Boston Food Swap
The goal of our monthly swaps is to create outlet for sharing surplus goods and offer an alternative to store-bought items, helping swappers eat locally, sustainably, and affordably. We’re active in the swapping and local food communities, and we’re working to grow the swap through blogging, social media, and partnerships with like-minded organizations.
