We’re a community of mostly 20- and 30-somethings who’ve each experienced significant loss, and get together over dinner parties to talk about it and the ways in which it continues to affect our lives. 

Join TDP in LA, DC, NY, SF, Baltimore - or start your own.

Dinner's Ready.  

Thank you to everyone who supported our Indiegogo campaign! With your help, we raised nearly $20,000 in the final weeks of 2013, and heard from people in 39 cities across four continents ready to start or join Dinner Party tables of their own. It's not too late to join: use the form below to get in touch, or email us at info@thedinnerparty.org.  


While sitting around the table, we pass plates full of favorite recipes and the rituals - tips, tricks, hobbies - we've explored as we move through life after loss.  Check out what we've collected and share your own.


I felt relieved, knowing that for maybe even one night of my life I could talk openly about what has been so relevant and transforming in my life for the past 4 years. Because the group is formed of people (who I can now consider my friends) of my age group and mental wavelength, I feel that we have been able to easily go deeper than any randomly assembled grief group and tap into deep, subconscious emotions that I otherwise may have never realized, acknowledged or explored.
