It was a month of preparing for the event Loaves and Fishes 10 and Impact OC had in partnership with Santa Ana High School, Santa Ana High School PTSA, Jovenes Nobles and CHICO. 50 students that were given groceries were chosen by their income status and also were referred to by other teachers that know the student’s needs. Elizabeth Mejia and Rosie Alatorre were a great help in putting together this great event for the students.

Families were very grateful for the assistance given to them from the distribution especially

in times when it is needed. It is always a good day when we can come together and  show

our community that there are people who care about their well being. We could not

have pulled this off without the collaboration between organization that have a heart

for the community. Impact OC is an organization ready to step up to the plate and do its

part to support the community with as many resources as possible. We are a group of people

with passion and integrity determined to see the families in our community receive what

everyone else wants and that is security in their life and in their families lives.

He Isn’t Always Dirty….

Fighting hunger is his calling but fashion is his Hobby.

Meet the president of Loaves and Fishes x10 a man who is dedicated to fighting hunger for the last sixteen years.  He 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.
