BK Swappers News, Fall 2012
A million thanks to those of you who came out to the Mealku loft last Thursday for the swap! It was a truly fantastic night, with friendly people and crazy-good swappables. You all are totally inspiring.
There are a few lovely photos from the swap up on our Facebook page, taken by photographer Jeniffer Almonte.
And here’s one swapper’s blog post detailing her haul: cider, pickles, cookies, granola, relish and more. Nice.
If you’ve got photos from the swap, or you wrote your own blog post about the event, let us know on our Facebook page!
Many more thank yous to the fine folks of Mealku for hosting us in their fabulous Tribeca loft space. Their Mealku Market program is an great opportunity for swappers to offer their homemade goods outside of a swap event; register with Mealku to share products and meals with your neighbors in Brooklyn and beyond.
More swap news:
- We encourage everyone to check out the Food Swap Network (which was launched by BK Swappers founder Kate Payne and Los Angeles swap founder Emily Ho). The Food Swap Network is launching a fundraiser to help cover the costs of creating an updated website, making the FSN site a functional, helpful resource for existing and new swappers. Here’s a link for swappers to contribute directly to Food Swap Network; or throw a swap in your own community, collect donations, and tell your friends in other cities to start their own local swaps too!
- Did you know that BK Swappers has its own page on Kickstarter? It’s a great place for us to promote Kickstarter projects that we find interesting and worthwhile. If you have a Kickstarter project you’re working on, let us know!
- The next swap is tentatively scheduled for early December, in Brooklyn. More details to come soon.
Thanks everyone, see you at the next swap.
