LA Food Swap


Join us for the LA Food Swap at ReForm School!  

Kate Payne, author of The Hip Girl's Guide To Homemaking and co-founder of the modern food swap movement in Brooklyn and Austin, will be our special guest.


What

A food swap is an event where you trade your homemade, homegrown, and foraged creations with other participants. Diversify your pantry while meeting your friends and neighbors. 

 

Who

We welcome everyone, as long as you bring something you made, grew, or foraged yourself. You must pre-register to attend. If you plan to bring a family member or friend who will be swapping their own foods, please register them separately. 

 

When

Thursday, May 24, 2012, 7 pm - 9 pm

Please arrive promptly at 7 pm.

 

Where

ReForm School, 3902 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90029

 

What to bring

• Food to swap: All swap items must be homemade, homegrown, or foraged by you. Think pickles, preserves, baked goods, honey, granola, pasta, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices… 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. When applicable, it is recommended that you include storage and shelf life information.

If possible, you should also bring samples for others to try.

Swap card: Bring one swap card for each different item you're swapping. For example, if you're bringing 5 jars of strawberry jam, 5 jars of apricot jam, and 10 bunches of rosemary, fill out 1 card for the strawberry jam, 1 card for the apricot jam, and 1 card for the rosemary. Fill out the top part only (Who, What, Notes).

You can download the swap card here

• Release form: Please note that you will need to sign a release form in order to attend. Print, sign, and bring it with you to the swap.

You can download the release form here.
