It is not too late to enjoy a free meal with your community at Wayside's Pop up Picnic series!

Organized by Wayside Food Programd and hosted by Cultivating Community, the Pop up Picnic series are four unique and collabroative community building events that are back this summer by popular demand. What started as a pilot program last year brought together 400 community members and 20 partner organizations and businesses to share meals together at public gardens throughout Portland. This summer, everyone is again welcome to come out for a homemade dinner, meet neighbors, play games, enjoy live music and explore the gardens. Different local businesses, partner organizations and musicians will be involved to make each event a unique, festive neighborhood experience. Food is a powerful tool for bringing people together and creates a common ground for building connections. In such a divisive time it is important to share in our common humanity.
