Great Video of Loaves And Fishes x10 And The Original Manassero Farms….

Posted on 27 February 2014 by robertflournoy

Another awesome  video of Orange County farmers talking about how they have

partnered with Loaves and Fishes x10 to stomp out hunger. Dan and Anne Manassero

of The Original Manassero Farms both have been a strong supporter against

hunger and it shows through their continued donations of fresh produce for the

community.

President Robert Flournoy of Loaves and Fishes x10 is very excited about

the relationship that has been built between the Manassero’s and his organization. He says

this is a new level for him to reach the multitudes of hungry people in our communities

with farm fresh food.

 

We, at Loaves and Fishesx10, are working hard to help end this waste and stomp out hunger. One way we are doing this is through our ongoing gleaning/harvesting projects. In partnership with local farmers such as Dan Manassero from The Original Manassero Farms Produce, we arrange for food pantries around Orange County to glean/harvest free, fresh produce for the low income communities they serve.

In 2012, we were able to donate 270,000 lbs. of produce to participating organizations. We also partner with local food banks to arrange for community food distributions that help provide families with a week’s worth of food. Just a few of the groups we work with are:

  • Saddleback Church Food Pantry
  • Giving Children Hope
  • Ronald McDonald House in Orange County
  • Santa Ana Food Bank
  • Heart of Compassion
  • Families Forward
  • Heart of Compassion

The Original Manassero Farms Plants Produce For Loaves And Fishes x10

Posted on 15 February 2014 by robertflournoy

After 3 years of collaborating with The Original Manassero Farms feeding the

multitudes with fresh produce, we are heading for a new level with our working

relationship.  Manassero will be planting produce especially for our food

distribution to food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens and churches.

      

There are several different types of produce The Original Manassero Farms grow.

Zucchini, butter squash, corn, tomatoes, green beans, cucumbers, watermelons,

their well known strawberries, broccoli and etc., but we have agreed for them to

begin with planting squash to help put an end to hunger in Orange County.   We are

very excited about this collaboration and hope to continue this wonderful partnership!

We will keep you updated during the planting and harvesting weeks ahead with pictures

and video from the planting of the seeds to the first growth from the ground to the bountiful

harvest!

If you would like to support this endeavor to help increase the amount of

fresh produce that we distribute, please contact us at: LandFx10@gmail.com or
