Guide lines for potluck
For many folks the potluck is the highlight of an SBC Ritual. It's a time for food, fellowship, family, frolic, and fun. In order to have as much frolic, food, and fun as possible we'd love to see a wide variety of different foods at our feasting. We aren't ever going to tell you what to bring, but if you are waffling a little bit, the guide lines below are designed to help bring about multi-faceted feasting. You are in charge of your own beverage needs, but if you want to bring some drinks to share, that's great too!
If you were born in December, January, or February please bring a main dish (meat or vegetarian).
If you were born in March, April, or May please bring some dessert.
If you were born in Jun, July, or August please bring some sort of fruit and/or vegetable, or a salad.
If you were born in September, October, or November please bring along some good carbs, like bread or mac and cheese or something made with potatoes.
Please bring enough to serve at least 10 people.
Please bring food that is ready to serve. There will be no one there to cut up a
whole chicken or slice a loaf of bread.
Please mark your platter/bowls/serving utensils and remember to take them with
you when you leave. Anything left behind will be considered donations to South
If possible, please label your food so those with food restrictions will know
what's in it.
