Kent Food Not Lawns is hosting a food swap
Where: Kent Social Services – 1066 S Water St, Kent, OH
When: August 13, 2014 – 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
A food swap is an event where people meet to share homemade, homegrown, and foraged foods (including plant starts and seeds). No money changes hands but instead attendees bring items they wish to swap for other’s produce. Packaging and labeling does help. Value of each item for trade should be around $5.
Each unique item will have a sheet placed in front of it. During the “walking around” phase, swappers will write down what they are willing to trade for a given item (sheets will be provided). For example, if you have jars of jelly and you want a loaf of bread, you put down your name and “jars of jelly” on the bread sheet. During the swap phase, you find people who want your products and whose produce you want. Sometimes you can get someone to trade even if they didn’t write down a bid on your sheet, but this is usually only if they have extra they don’t want to have to take home.
