What is Around the Table & why should I participate?

By hosting an Around the Table mealtime conversation at your establishment on Saturday, September 23rd, 2017, your business will be participating in an exciting, city-wide initiative to explore the many ways in which we can make Long Beach even better through the power of personal connection and collaboration. We believe all Long Beach residents and organizations share a collective desire to come together and figure out how we can use our individual talents, strengths, and resources to make Long Beach a safer, healthier, and a more connected city. As we come together Around the Table to listen and learn from each other’s stories and ideas, we have the power to make a tangible difference in our neighborhoods and our city. That’s what Around the Table is all about.

Why Around the Table?

These days, the connections we make with people are more commonplace via social media than face to face. We believe Around the Table is the place where on one day, every Long Beach resident and organization will have a voice, share their story face to face, and together come up with new ideas and possibilities around how we can make Long Beach even better. Imagine where these simple conversations Around the Table might lead our city next.
