New, Local ‘Food Swap Network’ Forms, Seeks Members
A new local Food Swap network has formed, with the goal of finding support for residents to share food with one another.
“I came from a family with a large garden and we always had too much produce,” said Organizer Heather Ingersoll. “Too much for us and for friends and neighbors. Now that I have my own garden, I want to share my goods with others with a no-money exchanged swap. I am inviting backyard gardeners, bee keepers, artists, cooks, bakers…everyone to participate.”
Heather adds that it’s only $9 dollars to join and there is room for up to 100 swappers, which would make it one of the largest in the nation, according to the Food Swap Network.
