“The perfect example of food being a universal language.”
- RAY McVINNIE, FOOD WRITER/ MASTERCHEF/ BITE
“Breakbread was full of thought provoking & humbling cultural storytelling. Spoken from the hearts of a few, to the hearts of many, we all felt moved and connected through their words and the simplicity of sharing food from the Mon culture with each other. Poignant & humbling.”
- NIKKI STEVENS, MEDIACOM/ GENERAL MANAGER.
"I enjoyed Breakbread so much. The speakers that were involved were amazing. I left the night feeling emotional but happy and inspired of the small things to be grateful for and how small differences in attitude can go a long way."
- HOLLIE SMITH, SINGER/ SONGWRITER.
“Doing good business is fundamentally about having the trust and respect of our clients. About great relationships. Break Bread shares powerful stories - culturally rich, diverse, courageous and independent - film, and food. It gives the people lucky enough to be its audience the opportunity to break bread with each other. It’s a wonderful night out, and a great experience to share with our clients.”
- SEAN McCREADY, MBM/ MANAGING PARTNER.
"What an inspiration - to hear the back stories of Kiwis most of us know alongside those of Kiwis we really don't know, was humbling and affirming. Humbling hearing the refugee stories of Koasorn from Mon, and Linda from Cambodia alongside the unexpected childhood stories of a popular news reader and a politician is something that completely re-frames your assumptions and deepens your understanding. Sure, stories like this are told through various media channels - but to sit, break bread and truly engage with personal stories of reflection, hardship and growth is a profound experience - and not something you get by flicking or scrolling. The food was great, the wine flowed and the tables were packed with wonderful people - people ready to break bread, to share, and in doing so, joyfully affirm the goodness of being human."
- MARGI MELLSOP, WORLD VISION/ MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS GM.
