The Longest Table 

Thursday, August 22, 2019 in the Wingate Street Arts District

The Longest Table will benefit L’Arche Boston North, a community where people with developmental disabilities and those who assist them live together as family, sharing daily activities and creating a home together in mutually transforming relationships of kindness and friendship. So much of life in L’Arche takes place around a shared table: in family-style dinner together every night; in Birthday Celebrations when we recognize that every life is a sacred gift to our community; and in Solidarity Nights when we share soup to support L’Arche communities around the world. With The Longest Table, we hope to be able to give our friends and neighbors a taste of what it means to be in community together here in Haverhill, coming together across difference. We invite you to come and join the conversation!

We are proud to announce that L’Arche Boston North will be hosting Haverhill’s first-ever Longest Table event on Thursday, August 22, 2019 in the Wingate Street Arts District. For one night only, we will transform Wingate Street into a table where we can all come together for a meal.  Longest Table events have been held in numerous cities and neighborhoods around the world and in the US from Tallahassee, FL, to Grand Forks, ND, giving hundreds of neighbors the opportunity to sit down for a meal together and share in conversation about their communities. This year’s event will serve as the kickoff to the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce’s Restaurant Week. We are excited to partner with the Chamber and to recognize the changing landscape of our local community as it welcomes neighbors of all abilities and new and diverse businesses to our increasingly vibrant downtown. The Longest Table is an opportunity for everyone in Haverhill—new neighbors and pillars of the community—to get to know each other in the best possible way: over a delicious meal!
