After 5 weeks of cucumber donations Manassero Farms is plowing down his field on the Edison

property next to Irvine Valley College but in one week he will be donating them again from a field

he planted down the street. We had a very good run of donations from this field that helped many

Food Banks and Food Pantries from as far as L.A County…

 

Heart Of Compassion picked up every week no less than 6 Gaylords…

Chrissy Olivia a young talented Artist has blessed L&F x10 with a painting she did of a gleaner from

last Saturday’s project at the Great Park.

 

 

Chrissy who is becoming a supporter of the ministry by coming out to the projects was gleaning

when the President was taking pictures of the volunteers. The President took a picture of her

and then casually said to her (Chrissy) you should take the picture and paint yourself gleaning

green beans because he thought it would be an interesting piece for her to do.

 

Well tonight Chrissy surprised us by posting the picture on Face Book of a little girl she had seen

gleaning last Saturday and plans to bring it to our next gleaning project and presenting it to the

the President.

 

We have to say that this is a surprise and a blessing to have an Artist like Chrissy paint

something we are passionate about.

 

Thank you Chrissy for your time and effort you put in this painting we will always cherish it

because we know it came from your heart and it is about what we are about and that is feeding

the Community.

 

Chrissy’s gift to L&F x10

To watch them in the fields participating is really something to see in person..

We always finish the day hoping everyone had a good time and are willing to come back again. We

can’t do what we do without volunteers coming out and spending 2 hours of their time and

because of that we thank them very much. If you would like to participate you can contact us

Brian who is a mean green gleaning machine is always ready to get it done…

Saddleback volunteers gleaned 800 lbs of Squash for there Food Pantry…

We had around 30 volunteers come out on a Saturday to take feeding to another level and we

appreciate them coming out and showing there love and concerns for the community.
