First Nations Kitchen (FNK) is the state’s only program serving free meals that are based on traditional Indigenous diet. They primarily serve the people of Little Earth but also welcome community members from across the Twin Cities.
The Episcopal Church in Minnesota welcomes all people. Our very first Bishop, Henry Benjamin Whipple, worked and served with the Native American community. While others were persecuting them, he was ordaining them. The Episcopal Church in Minnesota continues that legacy and maintains one of the largest Departments of Indian Work in the entire Episcopal Church.
We will be helping First Nations Kitchen serve their evening meal on Sunday, August 6.We have four shifts to staff:
• Food prep: 1:30-3:30pm (6 volunteers)
• Dining room setup: 4-5pm (3 volunteers including one dishwasher)
• Dinner service: 5-6:30pm (8-10 volunteers)
• Cleanup: 6:15-7:30pm (6 volunteers)
Contact Margaret Thor to sign up.
Serving at FNK gives us an opportunity to fulfill our calling to be in relationship with our neighbors. By serving others, we are able to honor God with thanks and praise for the gifts He has bestowed on us.
