Meet The Team


Sheera Goren | Founder & Chief Feeding Officer

Nickname: Shee; Sheego; Sheegz; Cookie (only by Momma G)

I am part of the Dination because I want more.  I want  to eat good food, socialize and give back at the same time.  The Dination is efficient.  It’s for those who make decisions with the greater good in mind, for people who don’t settle and strive to make a difference and for those who want to be a part of something they can be proud of – Yeah, I eat good food, yeah, I hang out with my friends, and yes, I feed people while I do it!

Favorite Dinating Moment: I have 3.  1) The first Dinating dinner at Cook’s County will always have a special place in my heart as I lived the beginning of this dream; 2) Sending the first donation check to SOVA as it was a real, tangible moment where Dinating came full circle for its purpose; and 3) Seeing someone I didn’t know wearing the “Eat One. Feed One.” Muscle T. So cool.

Favorite Food: Sushi

If I could Dinate with one person, it would be: ELLEN, duh.

Favorite Quote: “It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.” – J.K. Rowling

Indulgence: Froyo and The Bachelor.  Preferably at the same time.


Jade Sherman | Chief Social Officer

Nickname: Jade, Jadeypoops, Jade Ash

I am part of the Dination because I believe that one person can make a difference. The fight against hunger can be a bunch of little steps that can progress into something meaningful. There are so many needy people in our own backyard and I like that I can enjoy myself, socialize with friends, leave satiated and also give back to people in my own community.

Favorite Dinating Moment: When my mom called me and told me how excited she was about Dinating. She compared our work with Dinating to Bill Gates’ work in Africa…what can I say, she’s my Mom!

Favorite Food: Caesar Salad

If I could Dinate with one person, it would be: Mel Brooks. He was able to find humor in any situation and probably has so many great stories about old Hollywood.

Indulgence: Tagliatelle Bolognese with Shaved Parmesan

Favorite Quote: “Say yes, then learn how to do it later” – Richard Branson
