Oakland’s Two Star Market, located at 2020 MacArthur Blvd in the Diamond District, and LaPerla Restaurant at the same location, teamed up to produce the 16th Annual Two Star Market Thanksgiving Dinner 2018.
The Thanksgiving Day event, helmed by the market’s owner Abdo Alawdi, and which has served as many as 500 meals in the recent past, drew volunteers from around Oakland and the East Bay. The eatery says the event is “free, multigenerational, and community made.”
The video was posted by Timothy Chapman, who received thanks on the Glenview Neighborhood Listserv, that read “Thank you, as every year, to Tim for capturing Abdo’s amazing community meal on video, to share with ALL!!!”
