Chattanooga residents come together downtown to share Thanksgiving meal

Grace Stafford, Chattanooga, Tenn. – The second-annual One Table event, hosted by Causeway, is a city-wide Thanksgiving potluck held in downtown Chattanooga.

The event does truly consist of a single table stretching Market Street where everyone is welcome to attend and participate in the meal. The turkey and dressing will be provided by Dish t’Pass and Causeway, and everyone is invited to bring their own dish.

“One Table is about bringing people, who might not normally sit down with each other, together to share a meal,” says James Chapman, Causeway’s program director.

James Chapman continued that One Table is centered on community and authentic conversation among those who otherwise would have no connection.

“The more we bring people together from different backgrounds, the more they will be able to have a deeper understanding of each other. This is important if we want to be a more talented and innovated city,” stated James Chapman about the importance of One Table in the development of Chattanooga as an up-and-coming city.

The event is open to the public and all are invited to bring a dish if they wish.

“Good music, good food, and good conversation” are to be expected of One Table, and alongside the open invitation, draws a diverse crowd ranging from students to business professionals.

Following great reception from the inaugural year of One Table, the event returns for this year’s Thanksgiving on Monday, Nov. 23 from 11:30-1:30 pm.

One Table will be held in the block between Miller Park and Miller Plaza at 850 Market St. This location is important to Causeway as this could unite different demographics.
