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.

You can find the community on Facebook here and their new website here.
