Shobi’s Table

Shobi’s Table , a pay-as-you-can food cafe and ministry of the St Paul Area Synod, prepares fresh, from-scratch, delicious and nutritious midday meals and serves at three St Paul locations each week. Under the direction of Shobi’s Table staff, meals are prepared and served each week by volunteers.

Serving with Shobi’s Table

Shobi’s Table is closed through the month of January 2022 to take a break and tend to much needed out-of-kitchen projects. Their plan is to start up again some time in February, weather permitting. Check their website, Facebook page or Instagram account to see when they will start serving lunches again.

In this time when COVID-19 safety protocols continue to be needed, every potential volunteer is asked to consider his/her own health as well as those at their homes before volunteering.  If you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 or any other infectious disease, are immuno-compromised, or have a higher chance of contracting the illness and have not been vaccinated, please stay home.

Kitchen Volunteers and Training

Food Truck Host Volunteers

Food Truck Host Volunteers extend hospitality to those who come to the truck for lunch which might include handing out flyers, serving coffee and water, helping bag up meals, or chatting with folks who come by.  If you’ve got time afterward, you could help with dishes. Sign up for Food Truck Host Volunteer shifts here.
