21 Aug “Bread Man” Joe Fattrusso

Story #8
Air Date: August 21, 2013

Six days a week, starting at 6 a.m., Joe Fattrusso visits grocery stores around Ventura County loading his car with food to bring to seniors and poor families in his community.

He’s been doing this for 20 years and is affectionately known as “the bread man.”

Unfortunately, the heavy lifting of milk and egg cartons has taken a toll on his 83-year-old body, requiring hernia and hip replacement operations.

When 5-hour ENERGY® Helps recognized Joe with $50,000, he nearly fainted. Then he told us, “I got to go back and pick up more bread now,” before rushing the door to do more deliveries.
