Potluck in the Park has been feeding those in need in Portland, Oregon for 21 years. Every Sunday (without fail) for each of those 21 years our community has known that whatever is going on in their lives a hot meal can be found at O'Bryant Square park. This amazing group of volunteers is a true grassroots organization that continues, rain or shine, to help combat food insecurity in our city. As a Board member I get to see all the behind the scenes efforts that go into the acquisition of food, its preparation, delivery, service, clean up, and the constant fund raising required to keep up with growing demand. It is a huge undertaking that only works because of the incredible commitment put forth by our volunteers. I started volunteering 12 years ago when a friend brought me along to the park one Sunday. I never left. The miracle is that it continues to happen each and every week as new people, young and old, discover the joy of helping our guests enjoy a good hot meal. This is how positive change comes to the lives of both the givers and the receivers in the Potluck community. Please come and see. All are welcomed.

I enjoy serving on the board and bringing my accounting skills to this great organization. It amazes me we will serve close to 27,000 meals this year, never run out of food and never turn anyone away. Our limited financial resources are spread so thin, however we seem to continue to fulfill our mission for the past 21+ years!

My company has supported Potluck in the Park for over 20 years. As a caterer, feeding those less fortunate is a natural extension of giving back to the community. We donate time, resources, food and money to an organization that continues to see the need increase annually. Hunger is a global problem that continually seems to increase. I am proud to be aligned with an organization that helps these people weekly. Learn more at www.potluckinthepark.org
