pipPotluck 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.

Potluck in the Park relies entirely on volunteers, however due to Covid-19 safety protocols we are not taking new volunteers at this time.
