It was an event in the making for 3 months between Loaves and Fishes x10,The Original

Manassero Farms and O.C Autism. The purpose of the event was for O.C Autism to make

a scarecrow for the farm that will go on the field.

Julie Diep Director of O.C Autism was having a good time making the scarecrow because

this was her first time she and her team ever made one. This team are always excited

when it comes to events and it shows here in the pictures.

Retired California State Senator Lou Correa came by as well to enjoy the atmosphere and the

great food donated by Mustard Cafe in Irvine. The senator is a good friend to the Loaves and

Fishes x10 organization. We enjoyed supporting his healthy eating campaigns he use to have.

Thank you Lou Correa for spending the day with us at The Original Manassero Farms.

What another productive week distributing to Food Banks and not just in Orange

County but to Food Banks in general. Orange County Food Bank was one of

the biggest Food Banks last week to receive  farm fresh produce from our Orange

County farmers. Bryk seen here with the president of Loaves and Fishe x10 has

been very helpful in getting the donated produce out of the van.

The Los Angeles Food Bank was another recipient of produce from The Original

Manassero Farms. Through our contacts we  were able to send over 1,808 lbs to

the Food Bank. This was the first time we have ever donated to this great organization

helping to stomp out hunger in their area.

Serve The People another organization in Santa Ana serves between 200 to 500

people every to weeks. Drivers will either come out to the farm to pick up or we

will deliver to them like we did last week. We were able to deliver around 1,300

lbs to them last Friday.

We will continue to donate to these great organizations because we see what great

This week has been our biggest donation yet of fresh zucchini and yellow squash.

We really were overwhelmed with the amount of produce that came from the field.

With an average of 1,500 to 2,000 lbs every two weeks its no wonder we

donated over 15,063 lbs in two weeks to Food Banks.

David and Vince put their shoulders into it and picked some of the sweetest

oranges you will ever taste. These oranges would bust open if they fell on the

ground or dropped them t in the crates.

As usual during the last hour volunteers will clean up around the orange

trees. Many oranges will fall on the ground and volunteers do their best

leave an lasting impression by cleaning up the area.

What a great day we had at the Ronald McDonald House Saturday picking oranges. A

group of 10 volunteers came out including unit 6 Navy Recruiting office from San Diego.

This is the third year the Ronald McDonald House let our organization pick their oranges

for Food Banks. This year so far we picked over 700 lbs of fresh oranges for families and

plan to go back and pick the rest.

Division 6 Honey Badgers came out and did a great job but what do you expect when the

Recruiting office comes out. These guys really know how to get it done and it showed Saturday.
