Food for Friends, a local service organization, provides a noon meal for anyone who would like to have it every Saturday during the year. The Salvation Army, which provides noon meals on weekdays, allows us to use their kitchen and cafeteria to prepare and serve the meal. Different churches and service organizations in the Mankato area divide up the Saturday volunteers to provide this service.
St. John's serves a hot meatloaf, scalloped potatoes, vegetable, Jello fruit salad, and cookies twice a year, and a picnic lunch in July. Our volunteers provide the meatloaves, Jello and cookies and all the labor. We also request cash donations to help pay for the other provisions.
