It’s Coming! First Food Swap Of 2014… April 1st!

That’s right! After a few months of planning and hunting and retooling, we’re delighted to announce the first food swap of 2014! It’s time to shake of the dreariness of the long cold winter and start thinking and planning for spring… and we’re excited that we can kick off the new season with a food swap.

WHAT: April Food Swap

WHERE: Taste of Colombia – El Salon (67 Bronte Rd. Oakville, ON)

WHEN: Tuesday, April 1st, 7-9pm

WHY: Because we love getting together to share and swap locally made and grown food.

Just thinking of April 1st makes us think of green things and spring! As always, we are always excited to see what new and exciting things our swappers bring to the table… and then we get to see all the yummy things we get to take home!

We cannot wait to see you at our first swap of 2014. Everyone who swaps needs a ticket, so make sure you get over to our Eventbrite page and sign up!

See you on the 1st!


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.
