Our first swap is here!

Empirical Brewery

Empirical Brewery

We’re excited to announce our very first swap! It’s a brand new year — if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to cook more, meet more people, and experience more of our great city, then register for the Chicago Food Swap & Social.

The January swap will be held on January 20 from 3-5pm at the Empirical Brewery Taproom in Ravenswood. We’ll have plenty of time for swapping and invite everyone to hang out after the swap and enjoy one of Empirical’s science-centric brews. If this is your first swap, check out our Swap 101 and FAQ. Everyone is welcome — we guarantee you’ll have a great time!

We’re looking forward to a great year of swapping and are always on the lookout for swap locations across the entire city. If you have an idea or space that might work, let us know.

Also, if you’re closer to Oak Park, we recommend attending the Chicago Food Swap, which is regularly held at Sugar Beet Co-op. The Chicago Food Swap was founded and is organized by Emily Paster, author of the book Food Swap, which is the resource for food swapping ideas and recipes. The Chicago Food Swap is the OG of the Chicago food swap community and how the organizers of the Windy City Food Swap & Social first started swapping.

So let’s get ready to swap — register now!
