Save Money on Groceries with AngelFood Ministries

Jun 24, 2009

The cost of groceries is really insane these days, isn’t it? And, that’s the last thing many of us need with the economy (and our incomes) being as bad as they are.

So, I have a solution (or at least, a means of assistance) that may benefit many of you and help keep your grocery bills down a little bit.

There is a program call Angel Food Ministries. It is nationwide program where you can order a “box” of food for $30. The boxes generally include a variety of meat, vegetables, side items, staples, butter, milk, eggs and a dessert. It is intended to be enough food to feed a family of four for a week. Pickup locations are usually at various churches across the country.

The way it works is this: You go to their website and find a location near you. Each month’s menu is also listed on their site. When I just went to their website, I discovered that you can now order online many places, so that makes it convenient. If your local church doesn’t offer online ordering yet, you need to go pick up an order sheet from them and drop it off with your $30. You generally need to order by the 2nd Saturday of the month and “Pick up” is on the last Saturday. When that Saturday arrives, you bring a box, or a cooler, or a bunch of canvas bags to “collect” your food.

In case you’re wondering if you have to be “poor” or a of a certain income level for this, you do not. My friend called to ask them that question and she was told, “We don’t care if you’re a millionaire. Anyone is welcome to participate.”

And, honestly, these days, who couldn’t benefit from saving some money on groceries?

As I was glancing at their website, I also noticed that they now carry an “allergen-free box” that does not include any peanuts, soybeans, milk, eggs, fish, crustacean, tree nuts or gluten.

In addition, they also have boxes targeted towards senior citizens. As they say on their site, these boxes contain: Ten perfectly seasoned, nutritionally balanced, fully cooked meals—just heat and serve. Each meal has been developed with the dietary needs of senior citizens in mind, and contains 3 oz. of protein, a starch & two vegetables or fruit.

You can also purchase additional “special” boxes which change every month but basically include a box of various meats, or a box of various fruits and vegetables or a box of seafood.

Even if this is not something that may interest you, I bet there is someone you know who would benefit from it, so please pass the information on!
