STAUNTON, Va. (WVIR) - The third annual Breaking Bread event will take place in Staunton on Saturday, April 13. The event, hosted by Building Bridges for the Greater Good, creates an opportunity for people to talk.

The afternoon will include a little music and spoken word poetry, but most of the time will be spent in small group discussions. Organizers said it's a chance for people to share their stories and build understanding.

“We want people to be able to have a chance to come in an atmosphere that is not polarized or politicized and just really have a chance to talk with each other and to make those connections. So that together we can build the kind of community that we want and love to live in,” said Catherine Barnes, with Building Bridges.

Breaking Bread runs on Saturday from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Booker T. Washington Community Center. The event is free and open to the public. Just bring finger food to share.
