The Longest Table is a shared meal at one table that stretches hundreds of feet along Independent Drive to foster conversation and build relationships across economic, racial, religious and ethnic backgrounds. The 2016 inaugural dinner drew more than 400 people from across Jacksonville for the open-air meal in downtown.
Dozens of dignitaries, from elected officials to business and religious leaders, will attend the dinner to introduce residents to people from neighborhoods across town and provide a setting to have meaningful conversations.
The Longest Table will showcase entertainment and culturally diverse food from Jacksonville’s own culinary community. Area businesses are contributing food for the community dinner.
Food sponsors include: Blue Bamboo, Indochine, Maple Street Biscuit Company, Mocha Misk’i, Seasons 52, and Soul Food Bistro.
