Our Potluck dinners are for GlobalPittsburgh members and host families only. It is one of the most popular activities according to our members and host families, both international and local. It is a great chance to meet new friends, try new foods and show off your culinary skills (store bought items are welcome as well, no need to cook if you normally don’t). Everybody brings something to the table and we share great meal and friendly conversation.
