What we're about
I saw a story on food swaps on CBS3 and looked for a group and couldn't find one. This is for those who like to cook vegetarian and vegan foods and want to swap dishes once a month. We all cook and bring 12 servings to a meeting, and take home 10 servings. Below are links to relevant stories.
I'm deaf, and assume many who would join would be hearing people, so expect most of the communication to happen online. But other deafies welcome!
(Sigh. People tell me that once something is online it's there forever. Not true! Neither of the links work a year plus later. I'll contact CBS see if I can get theirs and host it myself or something.)
Areas covered: Germantown (my turf), Mt. Airy, Chestnut Hill, East Falls, Manayunk, Roxborough. If you live further away and want to come, you are welcome to do so!
Ed note, 2018: The above was written in 2009 by the original organizer, and I've retained it for historical purposes though some of the information has changed. This meetup is for anyone and everyone, but all cooks must bring vegan food only to the swap. We still cook and bring 12 servings to a meeting, but because the current organizer isn't deaf and an ASL interpreter doesn't need to be provided for, we each take home at least 11 servings. We have a strict rule about no-shows: If you RSVP and don't show up without letting us know ahead of time, you are banned from membership if you pull the same stunt twice.
