  • Angel Food Ministries

    Has anyone participated in this? http://www.angelfoodministries.com/menu_0811en.asp

    Hope that works! If not just type in angel food ministries and check on what's happening in your community.

    We tried it a few months ago and once again this month. They said that September was the record month........no real surprise there, everyone is hurting.

    $30 and you get the regular package, and you can add additional items after that. You don't have to be poor and needy, anyone can use it.

    This is in our area too. I'm hoping my mother who is retired and on limited income will participate. Seems like they offer pretty good food.
    added on: I believe you have to do 1 hour of volunteer work also.

      We have it here also. Another lady and I from work would order the regular box for another lady at work - single mom with 2 kids. I have since told people in my community about it because they are on a fixed income and some of them have tried it. You order the regular box and you then you can order the speicals. We are not required to do volunteer work, we pay for the box of food.

        We have it here also. ANYONE can participate. There is no income check, no volunteer work required, and no limits on how many you can order. It was $25 here last time I checked, but it may have gone up since then. It is SUCH a WONDERFUL program. The food is good, it is not expired, - there is nothing at all wrong with it. I wish all of our Elderly, single moms and just struggling families knew about this.. You are eligible whether you make $0 a year or $1 million dollars a year.

          I have a couple of friends who use this. They love it. It really helps them out. No volunteer work required either.

            i did this when we lived in virginia.
            we have it here, and i tried to get on it a few months back but i missed the deadline for ordering forgot to look into it again

            when i did it in virginia
            i found that the foods that came in were weird labels. name brands i hadn't heard of.
            and i didn't really know what i was getting i just paid the money and that was that wait and see what i got.
            it was worth it, and i did get a lot of food out of it.
            but for the money now, i would rather be the one picking what i am spending my money on.

            it's perfect for alot of families, but i don't think it works for us now.

                    Re: Angel Food Ministries

                    I can tell you what we got

                    Regular box
                    1lb pasta spaghetti
                    whole roasting chicken
                    meatballs
                    1bag frozen carrots
                    1bag frozen mixed veggies
                    1 container 2percent milk from a powder
                    Oatmeal cookies
                    1 large jug hawaiian punch
                    1dozen eggs
                    chicken fajita strips
                    can tomato sauce
                    meatloaf
                    pack of hotdogs
                    tortillas

                    I also got the fruit and veggie box for $18.00
                    1 whole pineapple
                    5lb onion
                    5lb potatoes white
                    1lb red potatoes
                    3lb red delicious apples
                    bag of lemons
                    head of lettuce
                    head of cabbage
                    I think I am forgetting something here too

                    The angel food site shows where the food comes from. I do know that our local spaghetti sauce manufacturer makes sauce for other grocery stores and puts that brands label on it. So, alot of the food may have strange labels, but I am convinced they use reputable suppliers. Plus, in these times I don't truly think you can keep on a tight budget if you only stay brand specific. I know that this saves me a good 2 or 3 hundred dollars on my grocery bill. That is why I wanted to get into large cooking program. I can use so much of this in soups and meals that really go a long way.

                    i hope all of this helps. I know this program is a really good thing for my family.

                      Re: Angel Food Ministries

                      Hey Kat it is a great deal. We order it for the kids then one month decided to get one for ourselves and it was well worth it. It is supposed to be enough for meals for a family of four for one week or a single elderly person for a month from what I understand. Yes, it was weird brands we'd never heard of but the kids kept saying how they loved all of it, then they started buying the specials when we would ask if they wanted another order of food. All brands are from the US which Ronnie checked on after all the scares from China.

                      Oh Kat, I have another grandson, Noah Riley, born Sept. 10.

                        Sounds like a Godsend for folks on a tight budget!
                        Thanks for posting this and for all the comments as well. I know several that will benefit by this.

                          The website shows the menu for the month so you know what you're getting.

                          And I was concerned the first month about the quality, but everything has been A-OK!

                            I have heard of this. We used to do another one that did require community service, but quit as their packages included a LOT of prepackaged foods which were high in fat and not so tasty.

                            This one sounds a lot better. I will check into it in our town.
