We believe deeply in the sacred nature of a table and the powerful medicine that food can be––for the body and the soul. We may not be able to go out but that doesn’t mean we can’t dine together.
What happens at a Digital Dine-In?
We are offering Digital Dine-Ins to groups of 8-10 people. Participants are invited to prepare a meal in their own home and then join us on a video call where they will have the opportunity to eat their meal in virtual community. Each Digital Dine-in will have a unique theme and will be led by two hosts. Dinner themes are chosen by the evening’s hosts and are only limited by their imagination and experience. Conversations may be fun, educational, creative and more. For example, themes could be ‘Black and Latinx relationships’, ‘art for justice’, queer theology, ‘global community’ and so on.
Are Digital Dine-Ins only for those in North America?
En Conjunto is U.S.-based and A Shared Table is Canada-based and as such we hold a commitment to creating an online dining experience that can be enjoyed by folks from around the world. If a dinner topic is going to be specific to a region, or the dinner is held in a language other than English, that will be noted on the registration page.
What does it cost to participate?
That’s up to you! For individual participants, Digital Dine-Ins are a pay what you are able experience. If you are able and choose to compensate us for our labor, all funds will be distributed between the admin team and the dinner hosts. If you want to schedule a private Digital Dine-In for your group or organization please contact us for rates.
What are the agreed-to table manners for dinner guests?
How do I sign-up?

What if I’m interested in hosting a Digital Dine-In?
That’s great! We’d love to hear from you about what you’re envisioning for your Digital Dine-In. As a host, you would choose the theme for your dinner. Being a host is not about being responsible for all the knowledge or content of a call. It is about hospitality, facilitation, and creating an online experience that allows people to feel seen and cared for. We will provide all of the behind the scenes labor (webpage, promotions, registrations, attendee communications, technical support, etc.). All you and your co-host will have to do is having access to internet and a computer with a camera and mic. Visit here to apply to be a host.
What if I have questions?
Don’t hesitate to reach out. You can contact us with questions or concerns via email.
