Favourite Recipes Food Swap – April 24

In partnership with Food Swap Burnaby, we’re hosting another food swap at the Hastings Park Market on April 24th.  Not sure what a food swap is?  It is an event where makers and growers of food get together to trade their bounty.  It is a great way to diversify your pantry – after making 24 jars of strawberry jam, bring a few to the swap to trade for something different.  Your food is your currency! Some people make food specifically for swapping and others have an overabundance of something that they want to be prevented from going to waste.  All food must be made, grown or harvested by you – and must be low risk.

At April’s swap, we’re focusing on our favourite recipes – share your favourite recipe or cookbook with the group or make your favourite recipe for swapping.  Whatever way you incorporate your favourite recipe into your offerings, we want the good stuff!

In addition, this month we’ll be doing a cookbook swap.  Maybe you got a cookbook as a gift and its really not your style, swap it for something else!

Participation in the food swap is free but you do have to pre-register.  Sign up via Eventbrite to reserve your spot.  Space is limited!
