You're Invited to a Food Swap

Have you heard of Food Swapping? It's a great way to trade your homemade and homegrown goodies for other people's homemade and homegrown goodies.

Just a few weeks ago, I went to my first food swap and became a food swap junkie! Yep. I'm hooked. I think food swapping is the most fun... well, since clothes swapping.

So, I've decided to host a food swap this Saturday, June 25th at 11:00 am as part of the Frugal Festival Food! at the Canoga Park High School.

Food swaps are easy. You make some food item or pick some from your and your neighbor's trees. Package them and bring them to the swap.

The above picture is of the items that I brought home from the last swap. I took a basket of my famous chocolate covered chocolate chip cookie dough balls and swapped them for:
  • jam
  • mixed greens
  • 2 potted irises (not pictured)
  • oatmeal and lemon face scrub
  • brownies
  • lemons
  • squash
  • banana bread
  • shortcake
How yummy is that?!

Don't be shy. It is super fun to food swap.
