Angel Food Ministries


Good afternoon Friends ~ Hope you are all doing well.

This post is about Angel Food Ministries.

I read about this last year, but didn't try this out. It just came to our attention again from an online friend, and after visiting the website again, reading about it and the menu, we've decided to give it a try.

Below is some info from the website if you are interested, and if you are just click on the link above to visit the website and find a distributor near you. We have one about 3 miles away.

****************

By buying food from first rate suppliers at substantial volume discounts, Angel Food Ministries is able to provide families with approximately $65 worth of quality nutritious food for $30. Angel Food Ministries does not use out-of-date food or inferior products.

ABOUT THE FOOD
Each month's menu is different and consists of fresh, frozen and packaged food. Angel Food is purchased from the nation’s top food suppliers. Providing quality, nutritious food at significant discounts on a regular basis is one practical way to give people a “hand up” during difficult times. The cost for a box of Angel Food is $30. There is no purchase limit for boxes of Angel Food. There are no applications or qualifications necessary to purchase. VIEW OUR MENU

ABOUT THE VALUE
Comparison shopping nationwide in various grocery stores has revealed that the average retail value for the same food items would be approximately $65. Generally, one box of Angel Food assists in feeding a family of four for about one week or a single senior citizen for almost a month.

ABOUT SPECIALITY BOXES
Each month, Angel Food Ministries also offers “specialty boxes” of steak, chicken, pork or other foods. This bonus program affords participants additional food choices at a great value. There is no purchase limit for specialty boxes or bonus foods. There are no applications or qualifications necessary to purchase.

Has anyone out there tried this? We have heard from a few in a forum that have and they said it's good. Each month is a different menu.

I will let you know when we get our first order, which won't be until the 24th of Oct.

Have a great afternoon.

I am going to check it out. I have heard of them when a local church posted a sign referencing Angel Food. I did not know what it was about though. I am going to find out.

Hi Rainey! My mom gets it and loves it. Appears that their vegetables selection is really nice. It's great if you can't get out, which she can't (she's 85). She also gets their pre-made meals. She says they are very generous portions. Hope that helps!

I've tried the angel food ministries a few times before --it's a good value. You don't have to stick with it every month though if you don't want to.

I have never heard of them before. When I checked my area I think I found out why. There is only one and it is quite some distance away. Let us know what you think of it.

Good morning everyone ~ Thank you all for your comments on this food distribution center.

I will post about it after we receive our first order, which won't be until the end of next month.

In these times it is nice to be able to find places like this.

We probably won't order this every month, because of what is available at the time.

Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

There's a similar ministry around here, I forget the name.

You don't have to blog about gardening to join Blotanical.

It may take more than one try to get in when you try to sign up. I think I tried 2-3 times before it took my info. Somebody else mentioned that today.

Just keep trying and come join us!
