SG&S Employees Volunteer With First Nations Kitchen
Employees of SG&S volunteered at First Nations Kitchen, helping prepare the weekly to-go meal and fresh produce giveaway bags. First Nations Kitchen distributes food to the South Minneapolis community every Sunday from 4-5pm, preparing delicious indigenous meals and bagging organic produce. The SG&S crew was able to prepare 74 bags of fresh produce and 174 hot meals!
Uniquely, First Nations Kitchen is a ministry led by indigenous people for indigenous people. FNK’s Ministry Team leads all aspects of the program on a volunteer-basis without compensation, though there are specific and agreed-upon roles and responsibilities for team members such as Program/Kitchen Director, Volunteer Coordinator and Fundraiser. In addition FNK enjoys volunteer support from 13 area Episcopal congregations, the Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) of William Mitchell, and multiple churches of various denominations. The engagement of the partner congregations has evolved as a model for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota which in recent years has collectively discerned a call to engage opportunities for mission in regional settings, combining efforts, gifts, and resources across congregational lines.
