According to Potluck in the Park's main website "four to six-hundred Portland residents get to eat on Sunday because of Potluck in the Park. It is only because of the generosity of volunteers and donations from people like you that our Potluck community is able to continue to provide a meal to those in need."[1]

Sunday Meals

Potluck in the Park serves free meals to hungry people every Sunday in Portland's Paranoid Park (aka "O'Bryant Square"). Mealtime usually starts in the afternoon at about 3:00, but free meal "tickets" are handed out starting at around noon. The meal tickets are numbered; meals are served to ticket holders in ascending numerical order.
