FAQ - Freqently Asked Questions
Who should come?
Everyone! Regardless of age, gender, creed or culture, you are welcome. We hope to engage the broad spectrum of Louisville's community.
What should I bring?
1) A dish to share - Each family should bring a generous dish to share. Larger groups should bring main and side dish(es). Use a recipe with a family connection or something you just really like! There will be no power or ice, so please use coolers or insulating dishes to keep your food safe.
** For the Guiness Record, one person is counted per dish brought, so be creative!
2) Serving utensils for your dish(es).
3) Drinks - Bring your own drinks. We will not have access to ice. (Please no alcohol. We will be in a public park.)
4) Your Recipe - Out of respect for those with special dietary needs or observances, please bring a recipe card. If the recipe is a secret, a simple ingredient list will do. 
As most food will be prepared in home kitchens, we cannot promise it will be free from contact with possible allergans. No responsibility will be assumed by the cook, or the organizing committee. Please use your best judgement.
Should we bring plates?
No. Plates, napkins and eating utensils will be provided.
Where can I park?
Stay tuned - we’ll provide detailed information closer to the date.

Isn't this the same day of that awesome Dare To Care Hunger Walk?
Yes. You can do both! The potluck starts late enought that you can join us at the Big Table for dinner after the Dare to Care event. Stop at one of our amazing international neighborhood restaurants to pick up your dish to share!  We will be posting resturants near Iroquois Park where you can purchase a dish for the potluck.
