Tuesday September 13th the president of Loaves and Fishes x10 received a

Certificate of appreciation from the Santa Ana Unified School District Board

for supporting schools with groceries. The certificate was presented to him by

board member Valerie Amezcua at the board room. Principal Lisa Solomon

from Madison Elementary where the August 19th event took place said some good

words about the president and his efforts to give groceries to 500 students. This

was the third event Loaves and Fishes x10 did this years for students in Santa Ana.

 

Madison Elementary School serves over 1200 students. The school is identified as a School wide Title I program based on over 95% of the families qualifying for free and reduced lunch. We believe that all students are capable of academic excellence and learning far beyond normal expectations when provided with proper support, guidance and care from the community, administration, faculty, staff, parents and fellow students. We also believe that by providing the proper guidance and support to families we are able to help our entire community.

With the majority of families in the community living in poverty, we want to be able to help and support our families by helping to meet basic survival needs.
With your help and support, we will be distributing food to families from Madison Elementary, Kennedy Elementary and Roosevelt Elementary.

Our goal is to end hunger locally by providing food to those who need it most. It’s about getting real food to real families.

Door To Door Food Distribution…

Posted on 27 January 2014 by robertflournoy

The needs of the community is not determined by race, religion or denomination

therefor those willing to serve it can come from a diverse background, but one body,

one kingdom under God.  There was definitely power from the unity that was formed

with several churches from the city of Santa Ana  this past Saturday.  Lives were

changed from this community outreach both by those served and among those

serving.

 

There were about 30 volunteers that gave their time Saturday afternoon

to walk the streets of Santa Ana delivering groceries to the neighborhood.

We not only gave physical food, spiritual food as well through prayer.

The purpose of these outreaches is to make the presence of the Lord known to

the community during these struggling times and uncertainty that we, as believers

care about their well being and to share God’s love.  

Come out and be a part of this movement as we become of one accord,

making a difference in the community and in the lives of those we

touch.

Irvine Valley College Vets to Receive Food Donations, April 20

(IRVINE) — Several Southern California groups are working together to distribute food to Irvine Valley College (IVC) Veterans on Friday, April 20, 2012.  Orange County Food Bank, Compassion Ministry of Vineyard Anaheim, The Original Manassero Farms, LoavesandFishesx10 and the Irvine Valley College Classified Staff will participate in this first-ever food distribution to IVC veterans.  College staff will begin distributing food to Irvine Valley College vets and their families at 1p.m. near the breezeway of the IVC gymnasium.

This unique distribution is aimed at helping IVC’s student veteran population, who are particularly cash strapped. “At this time we are not aware of any community college in the state of California who has created a community and college-based food distribution program, said Robert Flournoy LoavesandFishesx10. “We are hoping to collect and distribute food to IVC’s student veterans on a monthly basis,” said Vincent Cooper, President-Elect of the IVC Classified Senate.

Irvine Valley College was recently named as a Military Friendly School, one of a prestigious list of 1,000 colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.

Saturdays 7th visit to Sarang Church in Anaheim…

Posted on 11 April 2012 by robertflournoy

President of L&F x10 was invited to come down to Sarang Church Saturday 7th to enjoy their

festivities and also to talk to the Pastor over their Food bank. This was an exciting time for the Church

and also all who showed up that Saturday. The President spoke to the Pastor over the Food Bank

about the Church joining him with the gleaning projects this Summer. This was not the first time

he had been their to talk about working together. Three years ago Sarang Church joined the Food

Bank he was Outreach Coordinator and procurer at. Every Friday David from Sarang picks up food to

take back to the Church and then Distributes it on Saturday. The president was introduced to the

Director over the food ministry and also other Pastors by David who welcome him.

 

As the event went on they handed out groceries to all who needed it and gave away free food at every

booth. This was amazing to see all the free cooked food being given away to what seemed like a few

thousand people. FREE!! in this economy to that many people.

 

While the President was watching the families get their groceries he noticed a booth and a Banner

that said “FOOD BANK COMING SOON SIGN UP HERE” this is what they had spoke about three years

ago and now is finally happening at Sarang Church.

 

The day turned out well with the words from the Pastor saying they want to get the youth involved

in the gleaning projects.

Thirty-one

Side Note…The President wanted the Adult Gummie Vitamins for months but never had the time

to go buy any..well what do you think was being given away free as well.

The Lord shore is good.

Bishop Street Distribution in Santa Ana California….

Posted on 02 April 2012 by robertflournoy

July 1994 the President of  L&F x 10 had his first Community Outreach on Bishop Street at

Lowell Intermediate School  where he reached 300 families with the Gospel of Jesus Christ

and Distributed 0ver 30,000 lbs of food including diapers and women products. This event

was the beginning of his Evangelical movement in Santa Ana.

Saturday the 31 st was an event to the Apartment complexes where food was set up and

distributed to the families and the Gospel of Jesus Christ was preached. The word given was

about trusting the Lord and not man to take care of there needs. The message

was short but straight to the point. Many came forward for prayer because they felt that they

were not trusting on the Lord and they wanted God to forgive them for there lack of faith.

We thank the Lord and pray he will continue to use L&F x10 to preach the Gospel and to feed the

Community. We believe in feeding the body and the spirit with the Love of Jesus Christ and we

will continue push forward as we draw closer to the Lords coming.

Reaching out to E.B.C Academy in Santa Ana California

Posted on 17 March 2012 by robertflournoy

Times are tuff all over the world when it comes to Hunger but not in my

back yard says President Robert Flournoy of Loaves And Fishes x10.

It was once said by a good friend of the Presidents that we should always work

on our backyard first before we do anyone’s else  or in other words feed our

community before we feed someone else. These are very powerful words from

a man who has been serving the Community for over 46 years. The backyard

here in Orange County needs attention and we plan to give it the attention

it needs.

 

We are very happy we were able to support this school…listen to the volunteers

as they speak about today’s event.

L&F x10 is working on supporting Vets in College

Posted on 09 March 2012 by robertflournoy

President Robert Flournoy has been in contact with Food Banks to see  if they

would like to support out vets who have come back from the Middle East

and are going to one of the Colleges here in California. The reason for the assistance

is stated on this letters:

 

I am the Director of Financial Aid and Veteran Affairs . Your name and organization was forwarded to me by one of our campus employees, Vince Cooper. I understand that your organization, “Loaves and Fishes x10” serve many needy people in the Santa Ana area.

 

The College has about 400 veteran students enrolled and we expect that as the wars in the middle east wind down,  many more will find their way to our campus. These individuals are facing many challenges as they make the transition from military life to educational endeavors. Many face the hardships of PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), lack of housing, funding for the basic needs, employment, child care and family health services. In spite of it all, these young men and women are dedicated to achieving their goal of higher education and providing a better life for themselves and their families.

 

The College would like to partner with you and your organization to provide food distribution and services to our veterans. Most of these individuals are receiving VA educational benefits and/or federal student financial assistance. As such, their income level, household size, and resources can be verified. Most will fall below 150% of the established poverty line.

 

I’d like to talk to you more about our veterans, the services we offer and how we might partner with Loaves and Fishes X10.

 

 

 

Regards,

Donations to State Senator Lou Correa office/Harvesting trees.

Posted on 02 March 2012 by robertflournoy

Two months ago when L&F x10 first posted the plan to have four Distributions

in the city of Santa Ana every month to help support the Community we have been

working vigorously to accomplish what we had said we were going to do. We also

mentioned some of our Community events were not going to be Evangelical because

we felt that we can share with other organizations as long as they are reaching people

in the Community with the blessing we are blessed with.

 

In a short video you will see the President talking about Donating to State Senator

Lou Correa office in Santa Ana California. Max Madrid a Board Advisor of L&F x10

Ministry and a good friend is also a consultant to  Senator  Lou Correa. Through

our friendship and Max love for the Community L&F x10 decide to donate to him

once a month to help the families they care about.

 

Here is the president speaking..

 

On another note the Sun is out and the Oranges are looking sweet and ready for

Harvesting. Irvine Valley College has between 80 to 100 hundred Orange trees

on there campus. Two months ago L&F x10 Harvested 12 crates of Navel Oranges

a long with the SIFE and Green team from the College to donate to Food Pantries.

This Saturday once again on 3/2/12 we have the oppounity to Harvest around 50

to 60 trees on the Campus for Orange County Food Pantries and Homeless.
