Beijing Community Dinner (BCD) organizes dinner get togethers every few weeks. Each time at a new restaurant location — both delicious and affordable. And each time with a new guest speaker — from local non-profits, NGOs or other charitable organizations.

The community of both local and international friends gather for delicious dining and informal conversation. As the dinner comes to a close, the guest speaker will be invited to share a 10-20 minute talk about an important social or environmental issue their organization is working to solve.

To RSVP for the next dinner activity, signup for BCD’s newsletter, or get in contact via email.

Mission 🙏

“Great people, interesting ideas, and good foods” — Beijing Community Dinner (BCD) is an all-volunteer run community that’s bringing people together for all the right reasons.

Right here in the convenience and comfort of Beijing, here’s your chance take a culinary expedition — trying out a new restaurant serving great food from China’s diverse regional culinary traditions — or sometimes an international menu, too.

But what’s better than a dinner event where you can meet new people? A dinner event where you’ll learn about and discuss a social issue — and even get an informative talk from an expert speaker on the topic.

Become a world citizen learning how you can make a difference. Here’s just a few examples of topics from past dinners:

  • Efforts to save Asia’s endangered snow leopard
  • Support and challenges of China’s LGBT community
  • Strengths and weaknesses of China’s education system
  • Unique characteristics of suicide prevention in China
  • Orphaned and left-behind children of migrant workers in China
  • The divide between China’s rural and urban development
  • …and plenty more!

BCD is an inclusive international community of thoughtful world citizens — bringing people together to share good food and ideas to solve the world’s most important environmental and social issues.
