Project Description:

Potluck in the Park has been serving a free hot meal to anyone in need since 1991. Every Sunday, rain or shine, 52 weeks a year, we provide a hot meal in downtown Portland at the North Park Blocks on NW 8th & Glisan.  400-800 Portlanders do not go hungry on Sunday because of Potluck in the Park. We are a volunteer-driven, nonprofit organization and we accomplish our mission of providing nutritious food and an atmosphere of community to anyone in need, because of volunteers like you!

Potluck in the Park Details:

  • Potluck in the Park will be held at North Park Blocks at NW 8th & Glisan. We may not have protection from the sun/rain, so dress accordingly for the weather.
  • Volunteers should check in no earlier than 1:45pm and no later than 2:15pm. The actual meal service begins promptly at 3:00pm. We even provide limited cat and dog food for companion animals!

Dessert Service Activities Include: 

  • Helping to unload food and supplies
  • Setting up and organizing in preparation for the dessert service
  • Portioning desserts as needed
  • Serving desserts to guests as they come through the line during meal service
