Event Details

Join us for the Long Beach Food Swap!

Happy New Year food swappers!  We took a little break over the holiday season but we are excited to see you all in the new year and see what yumminess you have been up to.

We will be holding our next swap at the Bungalow Building in Long Beach.  There is a small parking lot behind the building if you are able to get a spot in the lot we will have passes for your car (make sure you find us for your pass right away because they will tow).  Please bring quarters for street parking in case you are not able to find a space in the lot.  Carpooling is always a great idea.  This building can get chilly dress accordingly.  

In addition to food swap items, we'll have a table for snacks, if you'd like to bring something extra to share with everyone.

Note: Space is limited! If you register and don't show up, someone else loses a chance to have your spot. Please make sure that you are planning to attend before you register. Thanks!


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, space in the facility is limited and intended for swappers only. 

When

Saturday, January 19, 2013, 6-8pm 

Please arrive promptly at 6:00 pm. If you not able to attend, please notify us so we can invite someone from the wait-list

Where

The Bungalow Building - 737 Pine Ave, Long Beach, CA 90802

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.

 

The Honor Code

This is a community event; however, participants must pre-register, which means this event is operated as a private club.

In addition, all swap participants adhere to an honor code of using the highest cleanliness standards in their own kitchens and gardens to prepare their swap items. Swap participants must agree to the following terms before registering:

• By participating in this event, you are acknowledging that the food items being shared are not necessarily prepared in commercial kitchens or spaces inspected by any government agency.

• By participating in this event, you are also acknowledging that you will use the highest standards of safety and cleanliness in food preparation.

• By participating in this event, you assume all liability; specifically, you agree to not hold liable food swap hosts, swap venue owners/providers, or other swap participants.
