First Nations Kitchen Ministry Opportunity

A Faith-in-Action Commitment for St. Mary’s

First Nations Kitchen is a ministry of All Saints’ Episcopal Indian Mission in Minneapolis and has been serving healthy, organic, traditional indigenous food in a welcoming, family environment every Sunday evening since 2008.

In the First Nations Kitchen model, volunteers prepare different entrées each week.  Guests choose which entrée they would like.  Those volunteers who prepare and serve the meal are welcome to eat with the guests.  In this way, participation becomes interaction and relationships can begin to develop. 

Dinner prep starts at 1:30 pm and clean-up usually ends before 7:30 pm.  We will share the various duties with St. Luke’s – Minneapolis congregation, splitting either prep time (1:30 – 3:30 pm) or serving time (5 – 7:30 pm) with members from St. Luke’s.

St. Mary’s is signed up for either a food-prep shift or a serving shift at First Nations Kitchen on the following dates in 2020:

  • February 23 — Prep: starts at 1:30 pm
  • April 19, — Serve: starts at 4 pm
  • August 23 — Prep: starts at 1:30
  • October 25 — Serve: starts at 4 pm

Let Deacon Maureen know if you are interested in participating in this ministry.  Add the dates to your calendar now.  She’ll send out reminders as well.
