So why is this important to do? How does it help us build people power, change the story and fix the system? A good potluck dinner will:

  • Provide a fun, welcoming and relaxing space to chill out and spend some leisure time together after all the hard work we’ve put in.
  • Allow volunteers to come together to share stories and feelings, reflect on what we’ve achieved, and feel supported in a safe space.
  • Connect with your local environment and community by sourcing your food locally.
  • Help to build and strengthen the relationships and community that we’ll need to rely on in order to take powerful actions in the future.
