On September 14, 2023, the Longest Table will welcome 1,000 residents to sit down for a free meal in a welcoming environment with people they may not know, to foster stronger connections, exchange ideas, and promote healthy habits to achieve better mental and physical health.
The importance of connection, discussion, relationships, and community have never been more important as we emerge from the after-effects of a global pandemic. In 2023, the Longest Table will help residents exchange stories and share ideas about what we can do as a community to foster connections with each other and promote daily healthy habits to achieve better mental and physical health. From walkable communities, to building active friendships, to promoting healthy food choices, join us in bringing good ideas to the table.
