Death Over Dinner is a unique initiative that helps people form small events where they can discuss mortality and how to come to terms with it.

The dinner can be arranged when people sign up on the site, which leads the user through various stages. These stages start with who would be invited to the dinner, what the user's intention is in regards to the types of conversations they want to have, what they want their guests to read or watch beforehand. After the questionnaire is filled out, the user simply activates their account, and Death Over Dinner sends along an invitation that users can send to their future guests. The conversations are designed to help people who are struggling with the loss of a loved one, a terminal illness, or simply to discuss something that will eventually affect everyone.

Death Over Dinner functions as a bonding experience that can help people through their fears, grieving process or simply their understanding of mortality – a subject which is often skirted around.
