1TABLE is Causeway's annual city-wide Thanksgiving potluck. Every year on the Monday before Thanksgiving, we shut down a block on MLK Boulevard for Chattanoogans to come together and share a meal in the middle of Martin Luther King Boulevard at one long table. Save the date for 1TABLE 2017 on November 20th.
Through 1TABLE we are removing barriers and bringing people together from across Chattanooga to get to know each other and build understanding. We believe that to build a city that is an honest reflection of its residents, everyone should be invited to the table. So please, invite friends, family, strangers and acquaintances.
There's no fee, no expectations and no agenda, just an open invitation to get to know your neighbors a little better and to give thanks for this city of ours, together. It is incredibly important to us that this event is inviting and accessible for all people. Want to help us do that? Please consider donating to 1TABLE by sponsoring a chair for $25.
"It’s a unique idea among U.S. cities … because it pivots from the tradition of merely feeding the downtrodden. Instead, food is used as a way for people who don’t normally hang out to meet one another as part of Causeway’s mission to make Chattanooga more connected."
