Journeyman electrician (and chef) Abdul Love led 36 volunteers Feb. 19 at the Seventh Annual Seafood Gumbo Feed at the IBEW Local 48 hall. 

For $20, attendees got seafood gumbo, corn bread, and dessert. Between that and help from event sponsors Bright Now Dental and Kaiser Permanente, the event helps members of IBEW Local 48 attend the annual national conference of the Electrical Workers Minority Caucus. 

This year, they sold out of gumbo after 350 bowls, and had to lock the doors.
