: : What does this phrase mean? "There's More to Breaking Bread Than Sharing a Meal"

: Depending on context, it might mean that mealtime is a social occasion as well as an opportunity to take in nutrients, or it might be a complaint from a disgruntled diner who was served very hard bread. ~rb

Breaking bread has a lot of religious and social meanings. It's about fellowship, not just eating.
