Annual Community Thanksgiving Day Meal
Invitation to our advanced Planning Team Networking Session
Wednesday, October 9th from 6:30-7:30pm
For over 35years, the CAPC Oakland community has been hosting a neighborhood-empowered annual Thanksgiving Day Community Meal. The brainchild of a College Avenue merchant, birthed when the Rockridge Community was emerging from the shadow of the neighborhood transformation caused by the building of Highway 24 and the BART Station, the meal continues to provides a space for community creation, solidarity and relationship-building. It makes a place for us to use our skills, resources and time to serve others: renewing our muscle memory of compassion, altruism, and empathy.
We are again hosting a Free Thanksgiving Day Community Meal this year on Thanksgiving Day, November 28th from 11am-1pm. We are looking for community partners to help us expand this action into a continuing community meal. We’re looking for partners to help with soliciting donations, accompanying volunteers, planning for food and decorations and outreach. If you’d be interested in being in a core team of advanced leadership please join us at a planning & networking meeting on Wednesday, October 9th from 6:30-7:30pm at CAPC Oakland (5951 College Avenue).
