GROCERY RELIEF!

Hey Everybody,

I just spent a great morning at my church working with Angel Food Distribution. This is a great program that is helping a lot of us combat the rising gas prices, as well as the always-empty stomachs of teenage boys! :) The mission statement of Angel Food is:

Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing food relief and contributing to benevolent outreaches in communities throughout the United States.


I look at it as sort of a buying co-op. For $30 per month, you get enough food to feed a family of four for a week. The menu is set, so you know what you're buying. The food seems to be about 40% - 50% discounted what you would pay for it at the grocery store. And the food is always GREAT! This program has provided a wonderful way for our church to minister to our community, as well as being a great deal for our church families!

If you're interested in saving some money off your grocery bill (and who isn't?), take a look at Angel Food and see if there is a distribution center near you. And if you're looking for a creative way to reach your community, perhaps you would consider investigating the possibilities for you and your church to become involved in this outreach opportunity!

I had never heard of this! There is one right in my community (according to their website). I am going to look into this further.

Thanks for the "hot tip."

Kelly told me about this. I am on my way now to check it out. After all, there's no such thing as a teenage boy who isn't hungry! :)

Hi, me again. (once you get me, I'm hard to get rid of!)
Just had to let you know that I thought that Angel Food Ministries looked like a great idea. Also,there is a distribution site less than 5 miles from my house. I placed an order and even ordered one of the extra boxes (special #4).
My pick-up date is September 27th.
You know I'll be holding you responsible.....

Myadhdme,

I am more than willing to be held responsible! I have never gotten anything from AF that wasn't really good!

We do the boxes, too!

I'll take any tips from you on how to keep a growing boy full!

KELLY!!
This could have been a Tuesday Tip! I am so totally still up for that!
