Since 2008, St. James has been honored to join with All Saints Episcopal Indian Mission in Minneapolis, on Sunday evenings, to cook and serve healthy, organic, traditional food. While all are welcome at the table, First Nations Kitchen serves primarily Indigenous people in the Twin Cities, particularly residents of nearby Little Earth of the United Tribes, the largest Indigenous urban housiing community in the United States.
First Nations Kitchen models environmentally sustainable practices in all aspects of the program, including composting and recycling. We serve fare based on an ancestral diet of First Nations people: buffalo, elk, fish, deer, turkey, wild rice, and as well as fresh fruits and vegetables.
Watch the calendar for Sundays when St. James staffs several shifts starting in the mid-afternoon: set-up, cooking, serving and clean-up.
