Our Mission

The Living the Dream Foundation is the 501(c)(3) non-profit arm of Dream Dinners. Dream Dinners was founded on a mission of strengthening the American family by bringing them together around the dinner table and support their mission to grow great kids. The Living the Dream Foundation developed out of a deep commitment to serve our local communities by providing opportunities through acts of service. Together we are working to feed a need!

Founded in the summer of 2005, the foundation has raised over $150,000 to help families who have experienced some of life’s more difficult challenges, as well as hosted special events in support of organizations such as Cook for Cancer, The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research, Ronald McDonald House Charities®, the NFL Wives club, “Off The Field” Players’ Wives, MOP’s, Young Life, Make-A-Wish® Alaska and Washington and Friends and Family Community Connection.

While a majority of the funds raised have been in our own back door, we like to recognize the many efforts put forth by our Dream Dinners franchisees across the nation. With funds and service in support of cancer victims and cures, natural disasters, and the fight against hunger, collectively we have donated over 13 million meals for a wide variety of causes in the United States and abroad.

Through the Living the Dream Foundation and with your help, we are all truly making a difference!
