Big THANKS to last week’s volunteers for GIVING their time!

What a wonderful day it was out at the Great Park on Orange County Produce farmland.

We’re so grateful for our faithful volunteers that come out regularly, but are just as

thrilled to see the many new faces among those making a difference.

In addition, our community youth came out in support as well.  This is very reassuring

to see that the next generation learn the importance of farm to table philosophy and

giving back.

The day’s efforts yielded about 4,000 pounds of squash, zucchini and cucumber to

help feed the community.  This amount is estimated at enough to feed 7,000 people!

That is amazing and couldn’t have been done without all of the help from our volunteers.

Making a difference is our greatest achievement.  Through the help of so many we’ve been

able to touch so many lives.  Thank you everyone for your continued support!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our partners, friends and family from

Loaves and Fishes x10!

Thanksgiving Food Drive For 200 Low Income Families…

Posted on 17 November 2013 by robertflournoy

We like to thank all the volunteers and donors who have helped Loaves and Fishes x10

help end hunger. Without your support our job would be much harder to accomplish

 but your passion and the heart has made it much easier. We  have much to do and

 we have another opportunity in the month of November to help give families a 

Thanksgiving Dinner through our Food Drive in partnership with Civic Center Barrio

Housing. Our desire is to support 200 low income families who live just above poverty

with a great dinner.

 

Thank you for your support.
