We are excited to announce our summer Yappy Hour series with our May CRAVE Care’s Partner, Secondhand Hounds.


Holiday Season:

This Holiday Season, CRAVE Restaurant at the Shops at West End in St. Louis Park celebrated Thanksgiving by offering free, hot meals to families needing a little extra help. Although we are traditionally closed on Thanksgiving Day, CRAVE West End opened our doors to provide a full restaurant experience with complimentary, traditional Thanksgiving meals for hundreds of individuals in need. Many CRAVE employees came with their own families to volunteer their time! In addition to the CRAVE family helping prepare and serve these delicious meals, we also had a fantastic photographer on site to capture this special day for all of our guests.


The idea is simple; we serve free, hot Thanksgiving meals to less fortunate families as part of our 5th annual CRAVE Cares initiative. This event has been remarkably successful year after year, and the personal reward of giving back to the community is immeasurable. The CRAVE team worked with nonprofits to find people who would most benefit from the dinner, and this year we served over 600 guests on Thanksgiving Day!

CRAVE has always been a longtime advocate of charities and non-profit organizations in the Twin Cities. The CRAVE Cares program has partnered up with a multitude of charities, and it has been at the core of our mission from day one. We take pride in our natural propensity to give back to our community.

“We make an effort throughout the year to provide support to the communities where our restaurants are located,” said CRAVE Owner Kam Talebi. “The Thanksgiving meal is one of our favorite events to host because it’s really about bringing people together and giving back – the entire day is very festive and welcoming.”

The participants of the Thanksgiving dinner enjoyed a traditional meal of turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, cranberries, mashed potatoes with gravy, and pumpkin pie.

We’d like to thank everyone for joining us on this special day! We look forward to creating new partnerships and continuing existing ones. Happy Holidays from all of us at CRAVE!
