Big THANKS to last week’s volunteers for GIVING their time!

Posted on 28 November 2013 by robertflournoy

What a wonderful day it was out at the Great Park on Orange County Produce farmland.

We’re so grateful for our faithful volunteers that come out regularly, but are just as

thrilled to see the many new faces among those making a difference.

In addition, our community youth came out in support as well.  This is very reassuring

to see that the next generation learn the importance of farm to table philosophy and

giving back.

The day’s efforts yielded about 4,000 pounds of squash, zucchini and cucumber to

help feed the community.  This amount is estimated at enough to feed 7,000 people!

That is amazing and couldn’t have been done without all of the help from our volunteers.

Making a difference is our greatest achievement.  Through the help of so many we’ve been

able to touch so many lives.  Thank you everyone for your continued support!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our partners, friends and family from

Loaves and Fishes x10!

 

Please enjoy this video from one of our harvest this year:)

http://manasserofarms.com/dan-and-anne-manassero-owners-of-the-original-manassero-farms-receives-a-resolution-from-the-california-state-senate/

For the last four years Loaves and Fishes x10 and The Original Manassero Farms have been

working together to help stomp out hunger here in Orange County. The Original Manassero Farms

 who is owned by Dan and Anne Manassero who you see in the above picture donated over 250,000

lbs of fresh produce to our organization to be distributed among food banks,shelters,food pantries

and soup kitchens. Los Angeles Food Banks like “Heart Of Compassion” have been to Orange County

a few times to come and pick up Manasseros delisciuos  #2 cucumbers that were picked and then

donate to L&F x10. Heart Of Comapassion at times would come down and go back to L.A with

over 10,000 lbs of fresh cucumbers to help feed the 500,000 people they serve in their community.

We  are very fortunate to be able to partner with farmers like the Manassero’s who see the conditions

of our communities and are willing to help.

Irvine farm earns honor for local support

of food donations…

 

Photo

Last year, The Original Manassero Farms donated 250,000 pounds of fruits and vegetablesto 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.

Article Tab: farm-rises-jeffery-farms
The sun rises this morning as dew dries off gardenias planted at Manassero Farms headquarters at Jeffery Road and Walnut Avenue in Irvine. The farm is scheduled to be honored Saturday for its produce donations.
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.

L&F x10 President has a “You Tube”video of his single “You Said”

Posted on 05 May 2013 by robertflournoy

The President of L&F x10 has a “You Tube” video created by (Small Dragon Media) of his song

“You Said” a single we think you would enjoy. “You Said” was birthed from a time when our

president went through a time of depression and he needed the Lord to help him through.

The president says that there are many people who are going through depression because

they haven’t learned their lesson the first time and they continue to do the same thing over

and over again. He says if we wait on God  in times of decisions you can never go wrong.

“You Said” is a song that will minister to you if you are the type of person who continues to

go down the same path that you cant seem to break because of your lack of  faith in God and

your impatience….

Psalm 30:5

 Psalm 30:5 includes the phrase, “weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT…

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
