With 7 volunteers we did a great job harvesting cabbage that was ready to pick for Giving

Children Hope. Volunteers from Santa Ana and Long Beach came out to help support the

low income families by picking  Orange County Produce farm land. AG told the president to be

selective with the cabbage because not all of it was ready to pick Saturday.

ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT…

Robert Flournoy, president of Loaves And Fishes x10, unknowingly began his journey into fighting hunger when he made a commitment to help support seven (7) homeless people in Tustin, CA . For an entire year, he mainly used his personal income, with a few donations from friends and family, to provide them with hygiene products, food, and meals during the holidays.
In 2001, he volunteered with the food bank at his church, Templo Calvario, which serves thousands of people each week. His role included providing support to families who lived in hotels and low-income apartment complexes in Santa Ana, Garden Grove, and Tustin by arranging much needed grocery deliveries as well as offering teachings from the Gospel. As time passed, he became more and more involved with the food bank and went on to volunteer with Obras De Amor. It was there, he began to get involved with larger events such as renting out school parking lots and giving out over 50,000 lbs. of food to the community. His experience in event planning and food distribution through the food bank, led him to be in charge of food distribution for We Care America and We Care Santa Ana which are both projects of Templo Calvario Community Development Corporation. These events supplied enough groceries to feed 5,000 families each week.
In 2010, Robert became the Outreach Coordinator for Love Community Outreach of Santa Ana where his job was to help procure enough food to support 50 Churches and the surrounding community as well as have Evangelical food distributions and network with other ministries.
In 2011, after serving and being faithful to other organizations, he took a leap of faith and officially founded his own organization, Loaves And Fishes x10, where he is very dedicated to feeding the community both physical and spiritual. The organization collaborates with local food banks and arranges gleaning opportunities for them on farm lands throughout Orange County. In addition, Robert recruits volunteers and arranges food distribution campaigns. Today, he is excited about starting his own organization because he can see the hard work it takes and also the blessing it brings. He is very excited about gleaning because it has taken this organization to a another level of support for the community.
Because of his passion to serve God, Robert Flournoy has always supported the community after his work hours with dedicated ministry work and a humble heart.
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. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19:9-10

President will be singing his song “You Said” at the W.E. “Worship” Weekend April 26th

Posted on 07 April 2013 by robertflournoy

I wanted to personally invite you to a weekend of worship. A weekend where we forget about us and it’s all about Jesus Christ! If you haven’t attended one of these gatherings then make this one your first. Those who have come testify that they have a God encounter and are refreshed. We no longer publicize who is speaking or who the psalmist and minstrels will be, because God wants you to come because you hear Him calling you, come. He wants you to come because you desire to worship Him! This much I can share with you, the people ministering are people consecrated to God. They pour out ALL before Him to glorify His name and God responds. Don’t miss out on a personal encounter with God. This will be a gathering across the denominations of the body of Christ coming together to worship as one for the Lord our God is One!

 

 It will be the first of seven monthly gatherings to pray for the Santa Ana Convoy of Hope Outreach to happen this fall. This is a massive colloborative effort of the local churches, community agencies and businesses to provide a proverty free day and share the love of Jesus and His story. If you do not have committments for April 26th plan to be a part of this!

Link to the single for purchase… http://www.reverbnation.com/robertflournoy

 

Hello everyone this is the name of  the single made to bless you and also to raise

finances to help support the low income and poor in our community who are struggling

to put food on their tables. All monies raise from the single will go to buy fresh produce

from our local farmers to help support these families and also in return help to sustain

our local farmers. We believe this song will bless you and anyone else you know that may

be going through a trial in their life and need encouragement like the president did when   

he went through his Depression over 13 years ago.  We at L&F x10 like to thank you for your

support of the communities around us. Through your generosity we can make

a bigger impact and touch more lives.

Thank you.
