Rather than clinking dishes and dishes in a crowded banquet room, on Tuesday you could hear squealing tires and suitcases opening, loading and then closing in the garage of the Downtown Oakland City Center Marriott hotel. The urban tradition is known as Community Thanksgiving Day.

Dozens of volunteers buzzed on assembly lines to pack and distribute 3,500 meals – an increase from 2,000 meals in past years – to residents of roadways and pedestrian stations, as well as food pantries throughout the city. After the food was prepared, volunteers also handed it out from vans, which they manually hauled around the southwestern tip of Lake Merritt around noon.
