The Dinner Party

We're a group of young men and women out to change the way we approach life after loss, through candid conversation and breaking bread.

The Dinner Party is a community of mostly 20- and 30-somethings out to change the way we approach loss and life after. Through beautiful, unstructured dinner parties hosted by friends for friends, we invite those who’ve experienced significant loss to dive into long-tabooed territory, sharing a defining part of ourselves that rarely sees the light of day. Together, we aim to transform life after loss from an isolating experience into one marked by community support, candid conversation, and forward movement. Begun in LA and launched publicly in December 2013, we've grown from a couple dozen people to a network of 180+ tables, powered by 250+ hosts and thousands of Dinner Partiers active in more than 80 cities worldwide.
