First Nations Kitchen: Traditional indigenous meals and organic produce shared in an inclusive, welcoming environment every Sunday 4-5 pm at All Saints Indian Mission.

First Nations’ Kitchen (FNK) is an outreach program of All Saints’ Episcopal Indian Mission in Minneapolis which opened on Nov. 2, 2008. FNK is a justice-focused, Gospel-based ministry.  Our main intent is to provide healthy food to indigenous people, and to all, who would not otherwise have access to high-quality, fresh and organic food. We work with care to create an environment of radical hospitality and cultural empowerment.

FNK serves fare based on the ancestral diet of the First Nations people of Minnesota (bison, venison, turkey, walleye, wild rice, etc.). Every week we glean donated organic produce which we clean and prep as needed for cooking into meals or for sharing in produce bags. FNK strives to model environmentally sustainable practices in all aspects of our program. First Nations Kitchen is a ministry led by indigenous people for indigenous people. We practice relationship building and creative partnership in every part of our work, driven by our shared beliefs that respecting the dignity of all and breaking bread together is vital to our community. 

FNK served healthy, organic, traditional indigenous food in a welcoming, family environment in our All Saints building every Sunday until the COVID-19 pandemic arrived. FNK closed for 2 months, then quickly pivoted to an outside To Go meal and bagged produce sharing on Sundays from 4-5 pm. Thankfully this way of serving is going strong today. We look forward to the day when we can welcome all neighbors back inside to eat and share.

The FNK program depends on local volunteers coming from churches, schools, various organizations and our neighborhood. FNK welcomes people of all faiths and compassionate practices, nationalities, races, genders, orientations, abilities and life experiences to the table. We ask everyone's help  in creating an environment where people of all identities can feel welcomed and safe.
