We Donated 600 pounds of food to Veterans First who serves 120 Homeless Vets and their Families…

Posted on 29 April 2012 by robertflournoy

We have been very proud of our relationship with Veterans First because we are able to support

the men who have served our Country. We were introduced to Veterans First of  Santa Ana by one

of our Board Advisor’s name Max Madrid who is a vet himself.


See Advisors…



We will dedicate ourselves to do our best not only to help the Homeless Vets but also our Student Vets

that go to College. We expect the Distributon to the Student Vets to increas as the word goes out about

this program designed for Student Vets continues to move forward.


College Vets Distribution..



STRAWBERRIES…Were picked up today from The Original Manassero Farms and Donated to Hands Of

Mercy Encounter. Pastor Glenn who serves over 3,000 people a month  is always excited to receive

them because according to him the Churches enjoy Manassero’s Strawberries.

On another note…Saddleback Church Food Pantry Donated 36 pallets of coffee cups last week to

our Ministry for Distribution to the Community. We have designated 10 Pallets to go to HOC

or Heart Of Compassion this coming week. Pastor Eric is doing a tremendous job with all the agencies

that pick up food from him each week.


Take a look at his video serving 4,000 people groceries AMAZING!!..


SUMMER…is almost here and the plans for bigger Distributions to the Community are being planned

and also our gleaning events so stay tune and get involved with what L&F x10 is doing to help stomp out

hunger in Orange County.



Thank you Carrie…

Saturday 21st Harvest and gleaning on Orange County Produce Farm Land

Posted on 23 April 2012 by robertflournoy

The morning started off with phone calls from volunteers wanting to participate in the Harvest and

gleaning on Orange County Produce Farm Land Saturday. It was warm and clear not like last week

when we thought we going to have to cancel the event. We had new volunteers come out this time

and they were dressed and ready to get in the fields.

Broccoli was one of the vegetable that was ready for the Harvest. There was so much out there Saddleback

Church volunteers filled around 10 crates or more. Saddleback Church Food Pantry serves around 3,500

people per month  and fresh Broccoli would be a Blessing to the people. We then bagan to glean

the rest of the Cabbage we didn’t get the weekend before because we Harvested for 2 hours.

The president knowing that he had  another opportunity to glean the Cabbage invited a Food Bank

from  Santa Ana to come out with a truck to take it back  to the people they serve. Volunteers

from Saddleback Church and others helped to support the Food Bank by gleaning 3 bins of Cabbage

for them.  This Food Bank serves 48 Churches and the community around them even the president

of L&F x10 decided to get involved and glean Cabbage.

We ended the day grateful and thankful once again for the Blessing the Lord has given the ministry.

Leviticus 23:22

“‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the LORD your God.'”

Gleaning is the act of collecting leftover crops from farmers’ fields after they have been commercially harvested or on fields where it is not economically profitable

It’s been a busy Friday and Saturday….

Posted on 22 April 2012 by robertflournoy

Our Highly anticipated event to serve the student vets at Irvine Valley College turned out well on Friday

the 20th. We had staff, the President of the College secretary,Chief of Police and the Director of the

school foundation come out to box food for the vets and also for 10 students that were invited to

receive the groceries as well. Everyone seemed to be very excited to help bag and box the food because

it was for the students of the College and the first ever Distribution to the students

As we began to unload the van employees were asking what we were doing with all the food and after

they were told volunteers began to poor out will help to unload all the food that was picked up by

the president earlier that morning for the students.

This being the first time this has ever happened on the College you could feel the excitement coming

from all the volunteers. Statements were made about all the food that was donated. We brought

salad,can good,apples,oranges,salad dressing,rice,beans,carrots,pies  and much more.


Here a testimony from one of the volunteers…


This was a day every volunteer will remember because they took it to another level of  supporting

the students at Irvine Valley College.


Veterans testimony…



Link to photos…


Irvine Valley College has about 400 veteran students enrolled and we expect that as the wars in the middle east wind down,  many more will find their way to our campus. These individuals are facing many challenges as they make the transition from military life to educational endeavors. Many face the hardships of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), lack of housing, funding for the basic needs, employment, child care and family health services. In spite of it all, these young men and women are dedicated to achieving their goal of higher education and providing a better life for themselves and their families.

Irvine Valley College would like to partner with you and your organization to provide food distribution and services to our veterans. Most of these individuals are receiving VA educational benefits and/or federal student financial assistance. As such, their income level, household size, and resources can be verified. Most will fall below 150% of the established poverty line.
I’d like to talk to you more about our veterans, the services we offer and how we might partner with the Community Action Partnerships of Orange County and the Orange County Food Bank.

The Original Manassero….Corn Corn Corn…

Posted on 20 April 2012 by robertflournoy

I remember last year when I first saw this Donation Of Corn from Dan Manassero of “The Original Manasser Farms” I wondered just how I was going to put this in my Honda. I pondered about it for  a while as I

was taking pictures and videos to put on Face Book to show the Blessings of God and it hit me…why

not just poor it all in my car.. lol because there is no way I was going to put 42 crates of Corn in my car.

I began to poor the Corn in my back seat until it got so high I rolled down the windows and started to

toss it through..lol.

I then began to toss it in the trunk because the Corn was to high in the back seat…Imagine driving your car with corn up to your neck and also itching because the wind was blowing  pieces that would

land on your skin and also get in your eyes..

Through it all I praised God because I was able to Doante  1,680 Ears of Corn to Vineyard Food Bank.

NOW! don’t  get me wrong I am not complaining im just sharing what I went through to get to where I am Now. I would gladly do it again if I had to so that people can be Blessed with something to eat.

God will give you something small to handle to see if he can trust you with something even bigger.

Talking to A.G Kawamura about L&F x10 Harvesting cabbage on his Farm

Posted on 15 April 2012 by robertflournoy

We had some concern this week about being able to Harvest the 5 acres of Orange County Produce cabage

on Saturday because of the rain but the Lord gave us a Sunny day. Volunteers began to show up

at  around 11:45 am at The Great Park so that we can go over Orientation and also caravan to the

field which was a mile away.

A.G Kawamura (Owner of Orange County Produce) introduced himself and spoke about the park and

also talked about the tools needed to cut the cabbage. He also spoke about how he felt about these

volunteers coming out and Harvesting the cabbage. You could feel the anticipation from everyone

wanting to get to the cabbage and began to Harvest for the community.

We had about 60 volunteers come out today and Harvest over 8,000 lbs in less than two hours. Saddleback

Food Pantry Harvested around 2.5 tons of cabbage to serve the community in there area

Other Churches like”New Beginnings Community Church did an amazing job of Harvesting 5 pallets

with the assistance of a few volunteers from other Churches (Sorry I cant remember all there names

or Churches they affiliate with but I do remember two people…Cherryl Watson from Santa Ana Chamber of

Commerce and Courtney Thayer. Thank you both for coming out to support the community you helped

to feed 16,000 people today.


We finished the day with pictures,videos and a segment with A.G Kawamura and the President

of Loaves And Fishes x1o talking about the Community...Sorry for the low volume

Irvine Valley College Vets to Receive Food Donations, April 20

(IRVINE) — Several Southern California groups are working together to distribute food to Irvine Valley College (IVC) Veterans on Friday, April 20, 2012.  Orange County Food Bank, Compassion Ministry of Vineyard Anaheim, The Original Manassero Farms, LoavesandFishesx10 and the Irvine Valley College Classified Staff will participate in this first-ever food distribution to IVC veterans.  College staff will begin distributing food to Irvine Valley College vets and their families at 1p.m. near the breezeway of the IVC gymnasium.

Irvine Valley College was recently named as a Military Friendly School, one of a prestigious list of 1,000 colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.
