At the January Meeting, we will hear from two local organizations, Shobi’s Table and Young Adults Today.
Both organizations will share a 15 minute presentation outlining a challenge or opportunity their organization is facing. You will then have 30 minutes to brainstorm in small groups, sharing ideas, and offering connections to amplify their work and help propel them to the next level of impact.
The meals are made from-scratch each week, utilizing rescued produce from Twin Cities Food Justice. The menus are nutritious, delicious, and provide dignity through the real food truck experience of providing choices that folks want to come back for.
Volunteers come to help prep the meals and serve at the truck. Everyone – from volunteers and employees to guests at the table, are all the foundations of this table based community.
Young Adults Today
In addition to working with young adults, Young Adults Today equips, empowers and encourages young adult ministry leaders in a number of ways including the youngadultstoday podcast for youth leaders and volunteers.
