Burritt's Rapids: Jane's Potluck with the Locals



Action: Please call (613) 859-9116 to register your dish.

Nothing says 'community' like a potluck. Here are the "Top 3 Reasons" for joining us for a community potluck for Jane's Walk:

  1. You're going to be famished after all that talking/walking around the village.
  2. Eating communally is way more fun than eating alone.
  3. You bring one delish dish but you get to sample, like, forty more.

When you arrive at noon with your dish, you'll be given a wristband to participate in this eating extravaganza and your dish will be added to the lineup. Basic drinks will be provided. Please bring your own plate, cutlery & cup (to minimize the clean-up). Little muss, little fuss.

You know generally how this works, but here are a few reminders.

  • Bring a dish that doesn't require any cooking/prep/heating up.
  • Bring a savoury or a sweet dish (salad, sandwiches, appetizers, dips, veggies, etc. or cakes, pies, cookies, etc.).
  • Please label your dish with your name. You'll get a gold star if you provide a label with ingredients to provide information for people with dietary restrictions.
  • Your contribution need not be fancy, but it should be nourishing. We cannot feed the hungry hordes on bags of potato chips or jars of pickles.
  • How much to bring? Miss Manners says: "Be generous." Consider how much you/your family will eat IN TOTAL at a shindig like this.  Bring enough food to replace that total amount. That way, no one leaves hungry or feeling short-changed.
  • Pop your empty dishes in a sack and take them back home for cleaning.
