And you can find more information on their website, including what the current month's menu is. You order and pay by the deadline, and then they tell you where and when to pick up your order.

My mom does this, and they have some real good food on there (I liked the apple crisp they had last summer!) do you know how to start one up in a state? Oregon doesn't have one yet.... (08/22/2006)
There has to be someone, usually a church, that is willing and able to be a host. If your church would like to get involved, there is information on the website on how to get set up. Just click on the link in the article.

thank you for your tip and the link to Angel Food Ministries. I have heard about them in the past and have keyword searched in vain through the internet for their website so I could find out if they were available in my area. I was able to find a place for my family, my parents, and my aunts. Thank you and my God bless you and your family.
Does anyone know whether there is an equivalent in the UK please cos the website and idea looks great. (08/23/2006)
are there any
ange Food Ministries on Long Island???? (08/23/2006)
My husband and I have been getting a box every month since March. We are so overjoyed at the quality, variety and savings that Angel Food represents. We have never had this much meat/poultry in our freezer. We feel so blessed. (08/23/2006)
I'm embarrassed to say that I searched their site several months ago and just "didn't find or get it", seeing that it must FIRST be a purchased program by a church that participates, THEN you can try to get the food for yourself? Please clarify if this is correct.
I have more than $680 in basic bills and only $625
in income, and NO money for food, gasoline or
toiletries this next month. I ALSO foolishly let the
triple digit heat prevent me from focusing on my grandson putting his seatbelt on, drove my son's old car which had a lapsed registration and got a $330
ticket! When the judge heard of my plight he suggested a payout over several months, which my
son will somehow have to help me with. Bottom line,
we truly need food, gas money, and a few other items, PLUS I have an RX that needs to be filled that's now over a month old. Wow, it gets rough when it gets hot, prices of utilities rise, local water
reserves dry up, and the IRS decides to ignore letters to correct a simple error that caused them to automatically garnish my baby SS check $110 !! I
plan to have another and last garage sale before the rainy season, if it ever comes, but canNOT predict if any of the old stuff I now own will find the
right owner at the right price. Info about Angelfood
Ministries is appreciated since it can't be ordered directly and I have no money anyway. I may qualify for some local charity help temporarity, but THEY are
the ones paying for my doctor for so long and may not offer food also. (I can afford to lose 40 lbs. since I am carrying my "pantry" around with me all the time, mostly in the middle body, so I'm not in
a panic yet, giving most of what food we have left to my grandson who stays with me while his dad works a
new job.) He always provides, so I trust Him, all the time. God bless you. (08/25/2006)
I just went today & ordered 2 boxes today. I found the church on the website & I called them & they were very informative. I am going to try & see if my church wants to start doing this. Anyway, I paid for it & she said they distribute between 9am-10 am on a saturday, so you do not have to spend a lot of time waiting. She said it ususally only takes a few minutes. This church has the forms on the outside along with a drop box so you do not even have to go during church hours to pay for it. My son & his wife really need this help & I am really excited about this. (09/08/2006)
We ordered our first box last month and loved it. The quality of the food was outstanding. We ordered a chicken box and the chicken nuggets were better than any store bought or Fast food Chicken that we have had.
It is really helping us. This month I bumped up my order to last us the month, so I only have small things to buy at the grocery store. With two small growing boys who are hungry all day every day our monthly grocery bill is going down at least 200$ a month.
