Burnaby Food Swap features fun and fabulous eats

Home bakers, soap makers and even some fresh eggs from Anmore made its way to the Willingdon Community Centre on Tuesday night, for the first ever Food Swap organized in the Lower Mainland.

Hands were bustling and people were bartering, where admission was only gained with your precious homemade, homegrown or foraged creations offered for trade.

Think one loaf of artisan multigrain organic bread for your blackberry jam from the shrub in your backyard.

Samples were tried and conversation shared, and this swap showcased local people, ingredients and community in the finest light.
