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. I envision that we will share the various duties with St. Luke’s - Minneapolis congregation, perhaps splitting either prep time (1:30 - 3:30 pm) or serving time (5 - 7:30 pm) with members from St. Luke’s. I have contacted their coordinator to see what dates they are committed to over the next couple of months. Usually a church group volunteers about five times throughout the year.
See Deacon Maureen if you would like to participate or have any questions.
