Community Kitchen Potluck Picnic
Jul 30 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Sustainable Ballard Community Kitchen is having a Potluck Picnic!  Join us at the Ballard P-Patch (on 25th Ave NW just north of NW 85th Street).  Bring a big batch of your favorite picnic dish to share, along with the recipe for it, and extra containers to take home each other’s leftovers.   There will be a grill available if you would like to demonstrate how to make your dish on the spot.

We’ll spend the evening getting to know each other better, sharing recipes and continuing the conversation about developing Community Kitchen events and activities.  Bring your ideas for future classes/collaborative cooking events!

Want to know more about our Community Kitchen?  Contact the organizer, Chris Yang, for more information.

Currently, we are setting up once a month at Nyer Urness House, to provide free stationery, stamps and support with letter writing.

Interested in volunteering? - This is really the easiest volunteer assignment ever! You need to be able to read and write, and have good interpersonal skills, and be available for 2 hours once a month. If you’re unsure — come once and try it out!
