Rain and more rain was what we have had in the last to weeks. The rain is good

for the farms and very good for the community but for donations from the farm it was

somewhat difficult for trucks because they couldn’t get on the field because it was to muddy

but still we got the job done. Heart Of Compassion a Food Bank based in Los Angeles County

came down at 6:am the next morning after it rained the night before and picked up

6,000 lbs of fresh zucchini for the families they serve in L.A… H.O.C serves around one

million and twenty five thousand people a year.

David Deleon and his son Jacob have been a big help with loading produce from

the farm and unloading at the Food Bank. These two have been a great asset to the

organization by giving their time and service. We will continue to fight hunger

with our Orange County farmers. We cannot give fresh picked produce to families

unless these farmers continue to trust us with their life work.

Loaves and Fishesx10 also partners with local food banks to arrange for community food distributions that help provide families with a week’s worth of food.

Irvine farm earns honor for local support of food donations

Last year, The Original Manassero Farms donated 250,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables to feed those in need.

State Sen. Lou Correa, D-Santa Ana, is scheduled to honor the Irvine-based grower for its charity today at the Westminster Family Fitness Day, an annual event launched by the senator to promote exercise and healthy eating.

For the past four years, Dan Manassero, who founded The Original Manassero Farms in 1976, has donated corn, strawberries, cucumbers, tomatoes, squash, green beans and melons to Loaves and Fishesx10, a Santa Ana-based nonprofit. The organization then distributes the produce to food banks, shelters and churches in Orange and Los Angeles counties.

“It’s a shame to throw it away,” said Manassero, a third-generation Orange County farmer. “(Loaves and Fishesx10) is doing all the work. I’m just donating stuff.”

Westminster Family Fitness Day was created to encourage better eating habits among low-income families who might otherwise turn to fast food or similar options. The farm’s contributions aligned nicely with that goal, said Asia Cunningham, Correa’s district director.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at Sigler Park, 7200 Plaza St., Westminster. Correa will present the resolution at 11:10 p.m.
