Do you know about the Angel Food Ministry? Local organizations and churches serve as host sites where people can place and pick up orders each month. The food items in each box vary from month to month. Those ordering this month have a choice of a regular, senior/convenience, and an allergen free box. In addition, there are special boxes of which you can choose whether or not to add to your order. Since the boxes vary from $28-$30, and the specials range from $21-$23, Angel Food can be a very economical way to feed your family. While the website says that the food will feed a family of 4 for a week, you could stretch it further if you have a smaller family or one with young children. Angel Food Ministry is open to anyone, and they now accept food stamps along with other payment options.
For more details about the Angel Food Ministry in general go here. Faith United Methodist, our home church, is a host site, but you can search based on your zip code for other locations. If you order your Angel Food basket at Faith UMC, the orders are due on August 17th by noon. The pick up times are Saturday, August 22nd from 10:30-11:30AM. Want to see the menu for August? Go here. It is recommended that you bring a basket, cooler, or large box to help carry the items home.
