HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - One table, one mission: to bring our community together.
On Monday afternoon, hundreds from across the area participated in Huntsville's first One Table event.
One Table was hosted by Causeway Huntsville, a new local non-profit whose goal is to make it easy for folks from across the area to help out the community.
With Thanksgiving only a few days away, event organizers say it was the perfect time to bring everyone from the homeless, lawyers, engineers, and others together for a meal.
One Table featured a long table, stretched down the center of a road in downtown Huntsville, where folks gathered around to enjoy a potluck lunch.
Residents say the idea and initiative are smart. As an open invitation, participants were encouraged to get to know the others that live in the growing city of Huntsville.
