We’re proud to announce this month’s Paper Plate Award recipient…Sheera Goren!

Sheera is the incredible force behind Dinating, a unique non-profit creating dynamic dining experiences that give back. Based in Los Angeles, Dinating organizes dinners across town where the buy in not only gets dinators a delicious night out but also helps provide meals to those in need. Dinating partners with SOVA Community Food & Resource Program to deliver the meals and offer a monthly volunteer activity where dinators can see their impact firsthand.

Dinating is perfect for socially minded individuals who like to have a good time, enjoy fantastic food, and help make a difference. Sheera launched Dinating to raise awareness and help end hunger for good. Having grown up delivering turkeys to families in her hometown, Sheera always knew a little can go a long way. As someone who loves discovering great restaurants, eating out with friends and a strong passion for shmooshing words, she wanted to combine dining and donating into a modern, socially conscious experience. Hence, Dinating was born. Since launching in May 2014, each dinner and volunteer event has sold out and over thousands of meals have been provided. Thanks Sheera for all your hard work in helping end hunger in your community!
