Oakland's alaMar Kitchen & Bar just offered up a huge gift to show their appreciation to restaurant workers.
alaMar said that beginning this week they will give out 1,500 free meals per week to restaurant workers who have been displaced and affected by the coronavirus outbreak. alaMar is located at 100 Grand Ave and serves up fresh seafood and California cuisine.
Due to the closure of restaurants in California, we have an urgent need for assistance for the thousands of restaurant workers who find themselves suddenly without work, without a paycheck, and without a support system.
People who want to come and pick up a meal must show some identifying paperwork showing that they worked at a restaurant. Meals can be picked up between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Wednesday through Sunday evenings at the restaurant. The meals will be delivered via contactless curbside pickup.
