Swap Box Etiquette

Our swap box — a new addition to distribution this year, thanks to a suggestion from our friends at the (late) LES CSA — has been generally well received. It’s a nice easy way to have a little bit more control over the veggies you get to take home each week. Chances are there’s always someone who’d love a little extra of exactly the item you don’t want to take home … and vice versa. The box hasn’t always been prominently placed, but please do look for it if there’s something you want to drop in it.

Ah, and there’s the rub: please don’t just take. Turn on your own inner sense of justice before interacting with the swap box, and make sure your super ego — not your ego (or your id) — is in charge.

Basic rule of thumb: take something, leave something.
