Dining in the Dark at Home
What is Dining in the Dark at Home?
Dining in the Dark at Home is a free, virtually guided experience of eating a meal under blindfold. You will have an opportunity to experience an everyday challenge faced by those with vision loss and also hear from Brittney Hodson about her sudden vision loss and the impact it has had on her life.
Join us to discover a deeper understanding and awareness of what people who are blind or visually impaired face.
What can I expect?
You can expect to be inspired by our 30 minute program held virtually on YouTube Live, emceed by Mark Baden, WISN Chief Meteorologist. Come as you are—guests will not need a camera or microphone.
Be prepared to create your own “dining” experience after our program.
What will I need?
You will need:
- a computer, smart phone, device or tv to join our program.
- a blindfold for you and each of your guests (you can get creative and use items you already have like a face mask, scarf, bandana, sleep masks, etc.). Don’t have anything to use? Vision Forward has a limited supply of blindfolds to support your at home experience. Contact Joanna (below) for details.
- a prepared meal, appetizers, desserts, or beverages—you get to decide what experience to share with your guests.
- Friends and family to share this experience!
More details will be shared in coming weeks— our favorite restaurants offering curbside pick up, dining tips and how to log on to our YouTube Live program on February 6!
“Dining in the Dark awakened my senses to the reality of vision loss.”
