“The Longest Table is a community project designed to connect diverse neighbors and neighborhoods during this time,” Bryan Stewart, founder of The Longest Table Dayton, said. “We serve meals at different locations in the community to get conversation started,”
The group served over 300 people at the Third Street Bridge event in October. They held another event last week.
The grants range from $2,500 to $5,000. The city has awarded nearly $445,000 in grants since 2008.
