Thanksgiving Video Memories & Thank Yous

Our annual effort to feed the physically hungry and hungry to serve of Oakland – in partnership with our neighborhood merchants was a great success in terms of responding to the hungers of our city: physical and spiritual, providing a safe, warm place for people to be both fed and to feed others.  We used up all of our 300 serving plates, having roughly 100 volunteers working with our community on this common goal over the entire Thanksgiving Week.

Enjoy some video memories of the day and week.
