Boston Food Swap Changes and a Birthday Surprise!
In case you haven't heard, the Boston Food Swap went through a few major changes in 2014. 1/3 of our co-founding team moved out of the country (Susan is gearing up for her first Victoria, BC Food Swap soon!) and 40 Berkeley St was sold and Collaboratory 4.0 was displaced in March!
In honor of our 3rd Swapiversary, we are reaching out for help from our fabulous community. If you know of a space that would be willing to host Sunday swaps in the area, please let us know. Also, if you are interested in helping organize swap business, email us at bostonfoodswap (at) gmail (dot) com. Some skills we need to fill in are blog content providers, on-site event management, and administrative help.
In the meantime, we've taken our lack of permanent home as a sign that we should celebrate another year of swapping by spreading the word across the state and hosting a swap in Worcester! We're working with #swaplove maven Amy Chase, owner of the Crompton Collective to host out of town. The store is FANTASTIC, so this is a great opportunity for a little road trip and some retail therapy on top of regular swapping. We understand that the location is a bit far for our regular urban swappers so, please let us know if you would like to schedule ride sharing to Worcester.
To another great year!
