MNIPL, First Nations Kitchen, and Gandhi Mahal Restaurant came together to form the Gandhi Mahal Interfaith Garden. This is our story.
First Nations’ Kitchen (FNK) is a ministry of All Saints’ Episcopal Indian Mission in Minneapolis and has been serving 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.
