Our September Swap was a huge success! 

The bounty of the season was upon us!

We had the swap at Central Library in Burlington with our host Burlington Green.

Thank you Michelle Bennett for all your help making this a success!

Between bunches of herbs, fresh local veggies, preserves, baked goods, hand-kneaded bread and even homemade soaps, there was plenty to swap!

We continue to be amazed at all the good that comes from bringing people together – for the love of food.

March Food Swap

We’d like to give a huge shout out to everyone who came to last night’s food swap! It was a lot of fun to meet everyone and to see what they brought as their currency for the swap.

The swap was held in the boardroom at the Oakville United Way. We have to send a big thank you to the United Way for letting us use their space.

It was a small turn out, but it was very lively!

The best part is checking everyone’s goodies and finding out how they were made.
