Welcome Volunteers!

Potluck in the Park is an all volunteer organization that has served a free hot meal to anyone in need since 1991. Most importantly, each volunteer strives to treat everyone at the meal with dignity, respect, friendliness and kindness.

Volunteers and guests come from all walks of life, diverse groups who normally would not mix share a community project by serving a meal.  Potluck in the Park is an extraordinary example of what caring citizens can do to enrich and revitalize their city. 
 

Getting Ready

  • Wear comfortable, casual clothes in layers—we clean up outside, even in bad weather!
  • Eat before you come – we try to make the food resources we have stretch as far as possible each afternoon, so please don’t plan on eating during your volunteer time (unless you are “in need”)
  • Provide time to park – street parking is available but fills up quickly, so please provide ample time to find a parking spot and walk to the park
  • You won’t need a food handler’s card to serve food, but we do follow restaurant rules: Please tie back long hair; If you aren’t feeling well, please tell the sign-in person and plan to do a different job.
