St. John the Evangelist has volunteered to staff serving and cleaning up at First Nations Kitchen on Sunday, November 23, 2014. We all are grateful for any number of things in our lives. By serving others, we are able to honor God with thanks and praise for the gifts He bestowed on us. It is particularly fitting that we can offer out thanksgiving on the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving Day.
We serve in two shifts:
5:00-6:30 – Beverage server, kitchen servers, dining room servers, bus tables, dishwashers (need seven workers)
6:15-7:30 Clean up crew (need four workers)
Volunteers of all ages are welcome. We do ask that a parent or guardian volunteer with their children to ensure that all are safe in the dining and kitchen area.
It is a wonderful experience and lots of fun. It is casual, easy and a great opportunity to carry out God’s mission to serve the poor and the oppressed.
Please sign up by emailing the Rev. Margaret Thor at [email protected] and letting her know which shift you’d like to do.
First Nations’ Kitchen (FNK) is a ministry of All Saints’ Episcopal Indian Mission located at 3044 Longfellow Ave in Minneapolis.
While all are welcome at the table, FNK serves primarily indigenous people in the Twin Cities, particularly residents of nearby Little Earth of the United Tribes, the largest indigenous urban housing community in the U.S. FNK also rescues and distributes fresh organic produce to underserved people throughout the Twin Cities. Last year alone FNK distributed over one million pounds of produce and served more than 31,000 meals. For more information about First Nations’ Kitchen, go to http://firstnationskitchen.org/about-2/.
