Two Hours And 10,000 lbs Later…

Posted on 25 April 2016 by robertflournoy

It was a windy  morning Saturday as we gleaned fresh organic cabbage at the Great

Park. Volunteers were like the Post Office…Rain or shine the cabbage must be gleaned.

Over 40 volunteers came out ready to get dirty to help stomp out hunger. The president

as always gave his orientation on what to do and what not to do on the field.

36 knives is all he had for over 40 volunteers to cut the organic cabbage donated

by AG Kawamura owner of Orange County Produce llc. Cutters and and collectors

worked side by side going through the fields like locus. The winds at times would

come at us like a wave at the beach but they all stood strong. Our biggest concerne

was that the wind blowing dirt in the eyes of the volunteers but we escaped from

that happening.

The Navy volunteers headed by Alex stayed over an extra hour to help support

Heart of Compassion from Los Angeles. This organization has been a great help

to Loaves and Fishes x10 every year by coming down and taking massive donations.

With the help of the Navy volunteers we were able to donate another 1,000 lbs

to the Los Angeles organization. This group when asked by the president if they

wouldn’t mind staying another hour to help HOC they didn’t hesitate… Go Navy!!!
