MISSION: To create safe spaces, unique connections, diverse conversations, and growing communities through education, discussion, connectivity, and service.
MANTRA: The Breaking Bread Village creates spaces, connections, and communities- one conversation at a time.
VISION: To see communities searching to understand one another to create an environment where everyone can thrive.
WHO WE ARE: Originally based on the idea that “It takes a village,” we at The Breaking Bread Village have intentionally created a safe space free of judgment. Within this space, it is our intention for everyone to feel confident that their ideas and perspectives will be heard. We are committed to listening first, with empathy, love, and consideration. When people feel they have no voice- love, creativity, and hope can take a back seat to indifference, malice, and disdain. We strive to create bonds and relationships that allow people to form bridges they can all walk across to achieve a common goal motivated by peace.
Our outreach activities testify to our commitment to the community around us, not to mention the community worldwide. Spreading love, empathy, and inspiration along this journey, we have been building our village in a positive and caring way (organically). After all, it is much better to build on the things we have in common rather than tear down and divide on the matters that we do not. So we have cultivated various spaces to have these conversations to bridge gaps and create bonds between people who usually would not have them.
Traditionally many cultures across the globe attribute something special to share a meal. The love and patience involved in the preparation. The joy of entertaining, stimulating conversation with family and friends. Lifelong bonds often develop under such circumstances. This, too, lies at the heart of what we are about and who we are.
TBBV is streamed live on YouTube and Facebook whenever a conversation is happening. If you have a show idea please fill out the form below and someone from our team will be in touch. Click below to watch archived shows.
NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY: The Breaking Bread Village is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We embrace and encourage all differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make someone unique. The collective sum of individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, and unique capabilities represents a significant part of not only our culture but our reputation and the organization's mission as well. The Breaking Bread Village diversity initiatives are applicable—but not limited—to our practices and policies on selection; compensation and training; and the ongoing development of an environment built on the premise of gender and diversity equity that encourages and enforces respectful communication and cooperation between all. All employees, interns, and volunteers of The Breaking Bread Village have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. All are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion during work and volunteerism, at events where they represent The Breaking Bread Village, and at all other sponsored and participative events of The Breaking Bread Village. Our inclusion and diversity principles enable us to foster a culture of inclusion and belonging, build a community that reflects the diverse individuals, companies, and organizations we serve, infuse these principles into all areas of our efforts to drive innovation and growth and transform systems to achieve equitable access and outcomes for all.
