During COVID-19: food giveaways are still happening every Sunday evening from 4-5pm for guests to take home (dining in at First Nations Kitchen is closed at this time). Volunteers are always needed!
First Nations Kitchen (FNK) is a ministry of All Saints’ Episcopal Indian Mission in Minneapolis that serves traditional indigenous food every Sunday evening. Four times a year, we volunteer to help them prepare and serve their meal.
- Food prep and setup from 1:30-4pm: chop vegetables, prepare the meal, set up the dining room and grocery give away.
- Dinner service and clean up from 4:00-7:30pm: take orders from guests, plate and serve food, bus and wash dishes.
All Saints Episcopal Indian Mission is located at 3044 Longfellow Ave., Minneapolis.
First Nations Kitchen is a ministry led by indigenous people for indigenous people. Its primary intent is to provide food to indigenous people who would not otherwise have access to high-quality, fresh organic food in an environment of radical hospitality and cultural empowerment. They state, “We understand that food is medicine and want to bring back the ancestral foods of the peoples indigenous to this land to eradicate heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity from the native community.”
