One of the most meaningful local community events I have ever seen, The Longest Table!
For 3 years, The City of Tallahassee, Leon Country Government and The Village Square and Leadership Tallahassee together host The Longest Table. This year Longest Table, prepared to host up to 1200 residents, provides a free nice meal to residents aimed at providing a space for friends and neighbors to gather and engage in heartfelt ‘community talks!’ The whole purpose is to break bread and break down divides, strengthen relationships across diverse communities, and move the community forward together.
This Tallahassee annual tradition has attracted attention from cities across America and won my heart completely. I was there to witness a sense of human connection at a human level and I wish to see the conversations continue.
Keep the local tradition, The Longest Table!
