Bring a dish to share at the Potluck Lunch. It’s one of the best parts of the MOFFA Winter Meeting!






Bring a dish to share at the Homegrown ‘Eat Local’ Potluck Lunch!

A potluck is a gathering of people where each person or group of people contributes a dish of food prepared by the person or the group, to be shared among the larger gathered group.

MOFFA’s Potluck lunch is one of the highlights of the Winter Meeting. Bring a dish to share at the best local lunch around!

We are looking for some volunteers to make some of the wonderful dishes that they make last year!

  • soups and stews both meat and veggie based
  • bread, no more than 2-3 loaves(my notes from last year said we had too much bread)
  • salads
  • casseroles
  • desserts(my notes from last year said we didn’t have enough)
  • breakfast items-muffins, quiche, sweet breads

Fay Walton, our Hospitality Coordinator (Yay Fay!),  will be making pumpkin something, (bread or muffins) for the morning, and egg pie. For lunch, something with chicken, (casserole maybe) and pumpkin crisp for dessert.

MOFFA will provide the following:

  • Cheese
  • Coffee, tea, juice and milk
  • Cream, honey, and sugar
  • Butter
  • Water

I can hardy wait! See you soon!
