First Nations Kitchen
Several times a year, St. James is honored to assist in serving the people of First Nations Kitchen (FNK), a ministry of All Saints’ Episcopal Indian Mission in Minneapolis. We help cook, set tables, serve food and clean up as part of this ministry that has been offering healthy, organic, traditional indigenous food in a welcoming, family environment every Sunday evening since November 2, 2008.
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 models environmentally sustainable practices in all aspects of the program (composting, recycling) and serve fare based on an ancestral diet of First Nations people (buffalo, wild rice, elk, fish, deer, and turkey).
Every week, First Nations Kitchen also rescues and distributes fresh, organic produce both to dinner guests and to underserved people throughout the Twin Cities.
For more information for how to join with other St. Jamesians at FNK, watch for announcements or contact coordinator: Barb Owens.
