Opportunity Details

Potluck Christmas Dinner: Meal Service (all ages) *Holidays 2021*


Meal Service

Though this shift is titled "Meal Service," there will be a wide variety of task assignments. Please do not expect that you will necessarily be handing out food as positions will be assigned on an as-needed basis.

You may find yourself helping with the coat check room, running messages, directing or assisting guests, bussing tables or any number of other tasks! Please keep in mind that EVERY opportunity contributes to our guests' well-being and feeling that they are cherished at Christmas! 

Most of these positions will be outdoors. While many will be under the cover of tents, some will be out in the elements. Dress appropriately.

Project Requirements:


  • All volunteers ages 5 and up must be fully vaccinated (2 weeks past 2nd shot) and will be required to show proof of vaccination. Masks will also be required indoors and outdoors.  

  • Each volunteer must sign up individually.

  • There is no team sign up option for this event.

  • Any volunteer under age 14 must attend with a parent or adult chaperone.

  • We welcome all volunteers, but request that every volunteer under 18 years of age have a parent or guardian fill out a Youth Waiver Form (click here to download) and bring it with them when they attend their shift.

  • Volunteers under 14 should be accompanied by an adult, and children under 12 should stay with 'their adult' throughout their shift.

  • ​If you are looking to register youth age 12 and under, email Hands On, handson@unitedway-pdx.org and we will place a "guest volunteer" underneath the registration of the adult.

NOTE: In order to better communicate with volunteers, Potluck in the Park regularly sends out mailers and newsletters. To facilitate this, Potluck in the Park would like to use the contact information you supply when signing up to participate at Potluck In The Park. Potluck in the Park does not release this information to any other third party. If you do NOT wish to share your contact info with Potluck in the Park, please let the registration staff know on the day and you will be excluded from our e-newsletter and other mailings.
