Our 2 New Spaces

The Potluck Food Co-op now has not one but two physical spaces we will be using for ongoing distribution of food and operations.

The Food Bank:

This  is where we will receive and distribute our monthly orders. Please note that we can't store food there, so it will all need to be gone by the end of the distribution day.

Yukon Conservation Society (YCS) building at 302 Hawkins Street:

We have a small office at YCS which will be the central location for Potluck administrative functions, a meeting space for board and member meetings, and a location for us to arrange pick up and drop off of items or to meet members.

Having an office will also allow us to accommodate volunteers that may wish to help but need an office, offer our office space in collaboration with food security projects, and possibly house a hired coordinator in the future.

We are excited to be working in close proximity to the staff of Yukon Conservation Society, as we feel that many of our values are parallel, and that there is potential to collaborate on issues of food security.


Mark Your Calendars... Important Dates to Know (these dates may still change so stay tuned...)

  • Online store opens Friday November 25th
  • Board meeting: Monday November 28th 6:30-8:30 pm at the YCS building, either in the meeting room or our office. All members are welcome!
  • Order deadline for the first order Friday December 2nd
  • Truck arrives at the Food Bank Friday December 9th (stay tuned! We'll be looking for volunteers)
  • Distribution (Pick-Up Your Order!!) at the Food Bank Saturday December 10th 11 am - 2 pm (volunteers also will be needed)

Please note: The new website is taking longer then expected to get set-up because in-putting 5,000+ products from the Horizon and Discovery catalogues onto the site in a way that is user friendly turns out to be a time consuming process.

Since we may not get everything on in time for the first order, we will priortize the things that members have ordered in bulk in the past.

When you are placing your order, if you don't see something you want to order please send us a list of codes and quantities and we will process it separately. We will make a full current catalog available for at least the first order or so.


Should we have a Potluck Food Co-op Holiday Season Event?

It would be great for members and board members of the Potluck Food Co-op to get together over the holiday season and celebrate our friendship and love of organic food.

If anyone would like to initiate a PFC holiday gathering there, that would be great!

Please e-mail if you are the party organizer we are looking for.
