Apply to be an Official TDP Host

Nothing’s stopping you from hosting your own version of TDP this very night - but in case you want to get resources and support from the founding tables, we’re here to help.  

Here are some of the benefits you get as an official host:

Everything we’ve learned: We’ll share everything we’ve learned about making dinners great  - from hard skills like cooking for groups and community organizing, to subtler stuff like facilitating a conversation and self-care.
Being a part of something from the ground up: We’re building a whole new way of approaching life after loss from the ground up, and want you to be a part of it.  As an official host, you’ll be featured on our site as one of the people making this all happen.  In need of internship/volunteer hours?  As a fiscally sponsored 501c3, your time spent hosting can count!
A platform to share your voice: Our hosts are encouraged to share ideas, writing, photography and recipes on our site - a new outlet for your creative side.

To become an official host, fill out this application form and we’ll reach out to schedule a time to talk.
