Free Food Day at Lucky Three Seven

When: Wed., Dec. 23, 10 a.m. 2015

For the second straight year, the community-minded lumpia slingers at the Filipino takeout joint Lucky Three Seven (2868 Fruitvale Ave., Oakland) have set aside December 23 to host a free food giveaway. Everyone is welcome, whether they be regular customers, first-timers, or down-on-their-luck folks in need of a hot meal. The menu has yet to be finalized, but co-owner Jun Anabo said the spread will most likely include sinigang (a tamarind-based sour soup) and Alaskan king crab prepared the Filipino way — i.e., cooked in coconut milk. If the restaurant’s goodwill gesture warms the cockles of your holiday-fatigued heart, consider taking this opportunity to give back to the community yourself: In lieu of accepting payment, Lucky Three Seven will accept optional donations of school supplies and teacher supplies, which the restaurant will pass on to its East Oakland neighbor, the charter elementary school Achieve Academy. — Luke Tsai
