SOCIAL & SPIRITUAL SERVICE
ST. NICK'S FOOD SHARE
Join us on Saturday afternoons in the lobby to take part in our Food Share program. The severe impacts of the pandemic showed a clear need for a pooling of resources in order to sustain the livelihood of our families. Through the strong partnerships we have established with local nonprofits and community leaders, our food share has grown from a piecemeal endeavor into a fully robust and quickly growing church support system.
The breadth of our offerings is due in large part to our partnership with VEAP, a food redistribution organization in Bloomington. We also receive regular contributions from wonderful partners such as Vue Farm, Good Courage Farm, and several Episcopal churches in the metro. What started as a way to help feed a dozen church families is now a well known place throughout the Twin Cities where people come to pick up food, clothes and personal care items. We are currently distributing upwards of 500 pounds of food per week, helping feed several hundred people monthly from across the metro area.
We would love to have you come help us, or take some items home for your loved ones.
Dates and times TBD
In partnership with Hennepin Healthcare, St. Nicholas has hosted health clinics. These clinics serve not just our congregation, but anyone who signs up for them. These clinics are a great way to cut through the bureaucracy and bring much needed medical care and resources to people who need it.
We have organized flu vaccination clinics and COVID-19 vaccination and booster clinics. We are deeply grateful for our relationship with Hennepin Healthcare and their commitment to serving our community.
Volunteers are needed to organize and staff these events!
