The Dinner Party
The Dinner Party is a platform for grieving 20- and 30-somethings to find peer community and build lasting relationships. We screen, train and support a growing network of peer hosts, and connect them to 12-15 people nearby, who share a similar age and loss experience. What started as an experiment on a back deck in Los Angeles, has served well over 10,000 grieving young people to date. Today, 4,000+ active members gather bimonthly at 400+ local tables in over 100 cities and towns worldwide. We’ve been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, On Being with Krista Tippet, CNN, NYT, O Magazine, BuzzFeed, and dozens of other publications, and as a case study in various books, including The Upside of Stress, The New Better Off, and The Power of Meaning
