index

Come get your swap on! Bring one item, bring 10. Take 10! Gathering inside the event hall of our warehouse space at 3510 Ash St in Hampden.

All genders. Focusing on adult sizes. We are especially encouraging folks to bring men-friendly or men’s styled clothing to this swap.
Accessories, shoes, and toiletry items (bath products, cosmetics, etc) also welcome.

As well as a clothing drive, we invite you to bring dish items to donate to Food Not Bombs’ collection of serving ware. Mugs, non-glass cups, plates, BOWLS. Please, nothing of irregular-size or super fragile! We need to be able to transport lots of dishes easily in crates, and need dishware that is appropriate for what we serve (i.e. no shot glasses). This will greatly help in an effort to move away from disposable dishes that end up often in the street…and eventually in a landfill.

Please only bring CLEAN items. What clothing that is left will be put out at our weekly Free Food Day on Wednesdays at 12N, or taken to Food Not Bombs servings downtown on Sunday afternoons.

This is a FREE event!
