Dinner5 is a monthly dinner series where 5 attendees gather to enjoy a free, 5-course meal and discuss all things community.

Jake McKee designs Dinner5 as a casual evening where a small group of 5 people discuss all things community and enjoy an amazing culinary experience. The events can be in-person or virtual.

If the community meets in person, a chef design and prepare a 5-course meal just for the attendees. On the other hand, if they meet virtually, the event is a custom tasting experience that comes to each attendee's doorstep.

Only 5 people participate in the event each month. They form a well-balanced, non-competitive group of senior leaders and highly experienced community professionals. If you want to attend an event, you can complete the application form on Dinner5's website.
