Feed Evansville Hosting ‘The Longest Table’ Free Community Dinner
Did you know that 40% of our neighborhoods right here in Evansville, Indiana are in food deserts? That means they do not have access to fresh foods. That is a statistic community leaders and nonprofit organizations like Feed Evansville are working to change.
World Food Day 2023
It's hard to believe, but there actually is enough food to feed the world every day. So, why are so many families without healthy meals? There are several key reasons, and we have those issues right here in Evansville. Too many families cannot afford fresh produce and meats. Plus, just because you have a box of food doesn't mean you know how to prepare it.
Introducing The Longest Table Evansville
The Longest Table is a FREE dinner event that coincides with World Food Day. The goal is to do more than just serve delicious food; it's about building lasting connections, creating awareness about the food desert areas of Evansville, and celebrating the power of community.

The event will include entertainment from 3 O'Clock Charlie and Raymond AKA DJ XRAI Williams, vendors, and dinner.
