President of Loaves and Fishes x10…

Posted on 01 September 2013 by robertflournoy

Robert Flournoy, president of Loaves And Fishes x10, unknowingly 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.  Leviticus 19:9-10
