Breck promotes various service opportunities going on at the school. Check back often as this page will be updated regularly.
Volunteer Opportunity: First Nations Kitchen
When: Sunday, March 5 | Various 2-hour time slots are open
Where: First Nations Kitchen, 3044 Longfellow Ave, Minneapolis
Who: Middle and Upper School students and their parents
Members of the Breck community are invited to volunteer at First Nations Kitchen (FNK), a ministry of All Saints’ Episcopal Indian Mission in Minneapolis that 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 United State.
Breck volunteers will be responsible for preparing and serving the Sunday meal on March 5. This opportunity is open to all Middle and Upper School students and their parents. You can sign up individually or with a group of friends. Volunteer for about two hours — there are different jobs taking place at different times during the day. We will work with you (or your group) to find a job/time slot that works. This is a wonderful opportunity to strengthen our community through direct service.
Upper School parent Michael Florey is coordinating the effort. If you are interested in volunteering, please let Michael know by email or by phone (612-532-1378).
