First Nations Kitchen

First Nations Kitchen

First Nations Kitchen is primarily a justice-focused, Gospel-based ministry. Its intent is to provide food to indigenous people who would not otherwise have access to high-quality, fresh organic food in an environment of radical hospitality and cultural empowerment. Our parish is proud to serve on Sunday evenings several times a year.

COVID-19 Response Update: FNK is not currently serving their Sunday night dinner. They are currently gathering, cleaning and packing up produce for take-away. St. Stephen’s is currently supporting FNK through donations of masks, gloves and other supplies needed to keep volunteers and those who rely on FNK safe.
