Bread For Change

Bread For Change

Following the success of our involvement with UNICEF’s Bread For Good campaign, we realised there was a unique opportunity to help make a difference within the community across our restaurants.

The Bread For Change campaign launched in July 2012 with the generous support of our customers and staff.

Every one-three months we work in partnership with a charity and raise funds through an optional $1 bread donation.




When we opened the doors to MoVida in Hosier lane, Melbourne in 2003 no one knew what to expect. Here was this little bar on a graffiti covered cobbled lane near the

cathedral serving Spanish tapas and shared plates in a down lit room playing funky tunes.

It’s the kind of place you can come in for a beer and a jamón croquetta at the bar and then move across to a table and share a plate of slow

braised lamb, some patatas a lo pobre and down some seriously good Spanish red wine.
