Potluck in the Park is a volunteer driven, grassroots organization whose mission is to provide nutritious food and an atmosphere of community to anyone in need.
Bottom Line for Portland
For the past 25 years, Potluck in the Park has provided a nutritious meal and sense of community each Sunday, the only day of the week most other agencies are closed. In 2015, it served 33,265 meals, an average of 640 guests each week. Its all-volunteer organization serves those less privileged and never turns anyone away.
“Potluck in the Park feeds the hungry with food, respect and compassion, feeding both body and soul. It is a place where no one leaves hungry, in more ways than one.” —Larry Chusid, founder, Pongo Fund Pet Food Bank
