One City - One Table Partnership
In response to COVID-19 and the increased demand for food resources to be distributed in a safe manner, Mayor Curry launched the COVID-19 Food Delivery Taskforce to identify food access and distribution gaps and to create innovative ways to distribute food resources in a safe manner. The taskforce created a food inventory based on known resources as well as developed a member survey to evaluate system gaps and resources. To maximize the system alignment created in response to COVID-19, the taskforce agreed to formalize their efforts to expand the network of food and nutrition partners to become the One City – One Table Partnership.
In 2021, the COVID-19 Food Delivery Taskforce transitioned into the One City - One Table Partnership under the leadership of the University of North Florida (UNF). The goal for the partnership is to create a customer-centric community framework, with a centralized system, that will connect Jacksonville residents to food resources while maximizing service capacity and delivery. UNF launched the One City – One Table Partnership Symposium Series virtually on Thursday, March 4, 2021 with participation from the public, private and philanthropic sectors.
