What We Do

The Ministry of Shobi’s Table

Our Vision: Shobi’s Table is a common table where all find nourishment in body and soul. 

A Pay-As-You-Can Café – on wheels!

Following the values of One World Everybody Eats, Shobi’s Table creates and serves delicious, nutritious, locally-based, from scratch meals through the food truck.

The food is prepared by the community – from those who come to the truck regularly to the Synod churches who desire to make Shobi’s one of their ministry homes.

There is no set menu – but you can expect lots of soups, salads, sandwiches and baked goods.

Our Mission: Shobi’s Table sets up and invited in a kitchen community who eats and works together, strengthens one another in love, and strives for daily and sustainable justice.


Currently, we offer limited catering services to groups 10-150.  Menu categories of soups, salads, hot dishes, sandwiches and baked goods are available – we will work with you on specifics.  Pricing is $7-12 per person.  Availability is limited – contact Deacon Kari Olsen for more information. 

Our Values: Shobi’s Table is a food ministry that is centered in Jesus Christ, focused on partnerships, relationships, regenerative adaptability, and is with the people not for the people.

In the future…

Shobi’s Table has plans for growth!

We will work towards serving through the truck multiple days and at two locations.

We would also hope to expand our ministry into opportunities such as job-training, summer-lunch sharing, and a frozen meal program.

We need funding and people power to get there – contact us if you are interested in giving your time or talent towards the growth of this ministry.

Want to know more?

Invite Deacon Kari or someone from the Shobi’s Table team to come out to your church or community to share more about the ministry and how you can get involved. We’re available to share during Sunday School, Adult Forum, during the church service time, on program nights – we can even host your Coffee Hour! Other ideas? Contact Deacon Kari Olsen with inquiries and scheduling.
