A hot meal can do amazing things for a person. Founded on this simple idea is Potluck in the Park’s mission is to nourish and enrich the lives of individuals in need by providing nutritious food and useful social contacts. Since its goals are accomplished through a network that is entirely community and volunteer based, every donated dollar is used to prepare, store, transport and serve 400 to 600 meals every Sunday, at a cost of approximately $1.50 per meal. Potluck supplies guests with the Rose City Resource Guide, a comprehensive list of public services and assistance programs in the Portland. Most importantly, each volunteer strives to treat each individual with dignity, respect, friendliness and kindness.
