The Longest Table

The Longest Table is back and we are excited for this year’s signature event!

Below is a flyer as well as a set of Frequently Asked Questions as well as an opportunity to purchase tickets.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is The Longest Table?  The Longest Table is an Urban Mission fundraiser to raise awareness for hunger during Hunger Action Month in September. It is also an opportunity to bring our community (both near and far) together to dine at the “longest table” our community has ever seen!

How do I buy tickets?  Tickets can be purchased online HERE.  You can also send a check to Urban Mission at 301 North 5th Street, Steubenville, OH 43952 or pay at the door.

Where do I park for the event?
Parking is available near the Urban Mission Warehouse (311 North 6th Street) and the Urban Mission Church (301 North 5th Street.) Parking attendants will be present to direct guests to available parking areas. Designated handicapped parking spaces will also be available and clearly marked. Special arrangements may also be made in advance.

What time should I arrive?
Plan to arrive between 1pm and 1:30pm. This will give you time to park, get orientated with the table, and mingle. The meal will be served at 2:00PM, but guests arriving early will be treated to drinks & appetizers, entertainment, and opportunities to bid on donated gift items. The meal will conclude by 3PM and guests will be invited to enjoy “Table” festivities until the conclusion of the event at 4PM.

How should I dress?
Casual. This is a time to relax and enjoy a meal in the company of friends and great Ohio fall weather.

Where are the restrooms?
Outdoor facilities will be available nearby. Urban Mission facilities will also be open for guests to use.

Where can I find out more information about the event?
To learn more about The Longest Table and how you can participate, please call the Urban Mission office at 740.282.8010 or email asteele@urbanmission.org.

Something came up; can I get a refund for my ticket?
Tickets are transferable to another party, but not refundable. We appreciate your donation to the Urban Mission.

What if it rains?
If rain, we will move The Longest Table in doors into our newly renovated War Memorial Building located on the same street as the Urban Mission Church & Warehouse. The address is 423 North Street, Steubenville, OH 43952. Should the weather indicate the need to change locations, we will email the address provided when you purchased your ticket.

Can I walk up and purchase tickets?
Sure! We want this event to be as welcoming as possible. However, if you’re able to purchase tickets beforehand, this will help us make it the best experience for you.

Can my whole party eat together?
Yes! Each table will seat eight (8) persons. After purchasing your tickets, please call us at 740.282.8010 and let us know the names dining with you and we will make every effort to accommodate your group together. For parties of less than eight, other guests will join in around the table with you.

Is this a fundraiser?
Yes! This event benefits Urban Mission and its Hunger ministries. We encourage you to invite your friends and come out to support the Urban Mission this fall. Thank you for your support!
