SAINT PAUL, MN — Shobi's Table is a pay-as-you-can Cafe formed by the Deacon of Evangelical Lutheran Church, Kari Olsen, located in St. Paul. Shobi is a bible character known to demonstrate an extreme companionship for King David's soldiers. He gave a plentiful meal, fellowship and a secure eating area.

Keri, a former Food Service Coordinator at Holden Village, understands the connection between each Table of Lord's Communion and our Table.

She believes that nourishing food is the manifestation of God's love.

"One World Everybody Eats" is the value this community followed. Keri Alice Olsen hones her sense of calling by studying and putting food and religious theology into practice.

Shobi's Table partners with TC Food to get its fresh ingredients to produces and serves from-scratch, tasty, nutritious meals for people. The food will be served from noon - 1 p.m. (or until the food is out of stock). Pay-as-you-can means people can pay as little as $1 or as big as $100, and it can also be free!

Volunteers arrive to assist with dinner preparation and serving at the food truck. Volunteers, employees and guests at the Table are all the direct support of this table-based community.
