Storytelling Potluck with Community Plate

May 18 @ 6:00 am - 8:30 pm


“The Bounty of Katahdin”

Community Plate, together with Katahdin Collaborative, invites you to join us at Elks Lodge #1521 in Millinocket for a special evening of connection through the sharing of food, stories, and recipes. A Story Sharing Potluck Supper is an opportunity to engage with new and old friends and to make connections around something we all have in common: the food we eat and our family food stories. Bring a dish (with a story!) to share, an open mind and an open heart. During the dinner we’ll be sharing stories around the table, and after dessert, you’ll be treated to a collection of live storytelling performances from practiced storytellers — some may even be your neighbors! Bring your recipe to the event, and afterwards we’ll be compiling the evening’s recipes and stories into a mini community cookbook that all attendees will receive to commemorate our evening together and the community we created.

Our theme for this evening is “The Bounty of Katahdin.” We’re celebrating the cultural, natural, and culinary bounty of the Katahdin region. Whether we’re hunting, foraging, growing, cooking, eating, or engaging in the woods and waters surrounding Maine’s highest peak — there are stories to tell and food to share! Prior to the supper, you will receive a series of story prompts that we will use to share stories during the supper. Don’t miss out on this chance to create lasting memories and forge new friendships. We look forward to sharing food and stories with you!

This free community event is hosted by Community Plate together with Katahdin Collaborative. While your ticket “in” is the dish you bring (and you don’t HAVE to bring a dish — see our FAQ below), those wishing to contribute something can make a donation to Community Plate, either online or at the door. Community Plate is a nonprofit organization, currently applying for 501(c)3 status. We greatly appreciate your support!
