About Potluck

The Potluck Café Society grew out of a “youth-at-risk” employment initiative called Binners Dinners held at United We Can in 2000. In 2001, the Portland Hotel offered to build a café on its premises that would be operated by the Potluck Café Society.

In February 2022, Potluck moved to its new home at 298 East Hastings Street, equipped with a larger, state-of-the-art kitchen. This facility presents new opportunities and greater capacity for Potluck's future initiatives.

Potluck Café Society owns and operates Potluck Café and Catering, a leading social enterprise and Vancouver catering company that serves clients in Vancouver and Burnaby.

Our Mission

The mission of Potluck Café Society is to transform lives by providing employment and hands-on training to members of the community who face barriers to traditional employment, and providing healthy, nutritious food for people living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
