The kitchen has created a wishlist on Amazon. This makes it easy for supporters to give gifts that helps support, expand and sustain this good work. Check out the list here! We are also always looking for gently used shopping bags for the veggie market and large tupperwares (a gallon or larger). We are not accepting small plastics at this time.
We seek grant money to renovate a large gathering space next to the dining area, transform a storage area into a working office, purchase equipment in the kitchen, and finance the construction of raised-beds for community gardens.
This project would provide finished space for guests to gather before or after the meal for fellowship, for educational & spiritual purposes, and as a central meeting place for program development. The project would provide a ministry office in which to collaboratively conduct all administrative work (volunteer coordination, scheduling, meal planning, fundraising website management). The project would provide badly-needed food storage and coffee making equipment, and “seed” an urban community garden project.
The First Nations’ Kitchen Ministry Team intends to develop several ministry leadership teams made of up FNK Ministry Team members, guests, and people from partnering congregations. Each ministry leadership team will have oversight (financial, temporal, & programmatic) of a particular area of FNK life and ministry: physical plant and construction, community garden, Sunday meal planning & execution, volunteer coordination, communications & website, fundraising, food production programs (rice and buffalo), etc. The All Saints’ vicar, FNK program director and FNK Ministry Team would maintain oversight and coaching responsibilities for the various ministry leadership teams.
Ministry leadership teams overseeing portions of the project funded by a potential UTO grant (physical plant and construction, community garden) would take responsibility for charting out project strategy, time-line, and personnel and would provide financial accounting to All Saints’ and UTO.
