I’ve mentioned it before (on my very neglected May I Recommend page) but I wanted to mention it again because I think it is a ministry that is just so wonderful.
If you are on a budget, or know someone who is (especially the elderly), check out this site and find out if there is an Angel Food Ministry in your area. If there isn’t, find out how to start one here. Anyone can purchase food from the ministry. It’s not something you have to qualify for.
From their website:
Angel Food Ministries, a non-profit, non-denominational organization, began in 1994 as a small outreach ministry serving a rural community in Georgia. The goal was to help neighbors who needed a hand up in a tough economic time. Today, Angel Food Ministries can be found in over 3,200 communities in 35 states and helps feed over 500,000 families a month.
Angel Food partners with churches and community organizations throughout the country to help distribute food to those in need. For $30.00 you can receive a box of food containing both fresh and frozen items. Our food items are top quality – we buy our food from major food producers throughout the country to ensure the best food comes to your table.
Our church allows us to purchase boxes for others, who they have been made aware are in need. We’ve also purchased boxes to be donated to military families at Fort Campbell.
