    $30 for $60 worth of groceries

    Advertisements
    I received an email about Angel Ministries and wanted to share. So if you are in need. This seems to be a wonderful organization.

    http://www.angelfoodministries.com/a...w_it_works.asp

    Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing grocery relief and financial support to communities throughout the United States. The program began in 1994 with 34 families in Monroe, Georgia (between Atlanta and Athens), and has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of families every month across 35 states. Angel Food Ministries crosses denominational lines and has spread the good news of the gospel of Christ through salvation tracts that are placed in each food order.

    There are no qualifications, minimums, income restrictions, or applications.
    Everyone is encouraged to participate. Some churches even encourage participants to apply the money they saved to help someone else in need.

    Blessings by the box

    Angel Food is available in a quantity that can fit into a medium-sized box at $30 per unit. Each month's menu is different than the previous month and consists of both fresh and frozen items with an average retail value of approximately $60. Comparison shopping has been done across the country in various communities using a wide range of retail grocery stores and has resulted in the same food items costing from between $42 and $78.


    Generally, one unit of food assists in feeding a family of four for about one week or a single senior citizen for almost a month. The food is all the same high quality one could purchase at a grocery store. There are no second-hand items, no damaged or out-dated goods, no dented cans without labels, no day-old breads and no produce that is almost too ripe.
    Also offered are specialty boxes such as steaks, chicken and pork. Many participants in this bonus program appreciate the expanded choices. Additionally, there is no limit to the number of units or bonus foods an individual can receive, and there are no applications to complete or qualifications to which participants must adhere. Angel Food Ministries also participates in the U.S. Food Stamp program, using the Off-Line Food Stamp Voucher system.
    It's both a Bargain and a Blessing!

    Sample Menu:
    (this month's menu can be viewed here)

    • 4 lb. IQF Leg Quarters
    • 4 oz. Beef Back Ribs
    • 1 lb. 80/20 Lean Ground Beef
    • 2 lb. Breaded Chicken Tenders
    • 1.5 lb. Bone in Pork Chops (4 x 6oz.)
    • 1 lb. Ground Turkey
    • 18 oz. Stuffed Manicotti (Cheese)
    • 12 oz. Smoked Sausage
    • Betty Crocker Seasoned Potatoes
    • 7 oz. Cheeseburger Dinner
    • 16 oz. Green Beans
    • 16 oz. Baby Carrots
    • 2 lb. Onions
    • 1 lb. Pinto Beans
    • 1 lb. Rice
    • 7 oz. Blueberry Muffin Mix
    • 10 ct. Homestyle Waffles
    • Dessert Item
