Dining for Women chapters are small groups of people who get together monthly to share a meal, often in someone’s home, learn about global challenges facing women and girls, and donate their “dining out” dollars to grassroots projects that reduce poverty and promote gender equality.
Since Dining for Women’s inception in 2003, the organization has invested more than $6 million to support women and girls in more than 65 countries around the world. Investing in women and girls pulls whole families, communities, and even countries, out of extreme poverty.
“With Dining for Women, you can make a big impact because your efforts are combined with thousands of others in chapters across the country. I love gathering with old friends and new in this unique way to do something good in the world.” Stephanie Anderson, Fairport, NY Chapter Co-leader
