Angel Food Ministries is feeding people who normally would go without with lots of food, for very little dough.
When you sign up with Angel Food you get a box of food, it’s only 30 dollars and will feed one person for a whole month. In the box you get all sorts of food like ground beef, chicken breasts, chicken patties, even a box of macaroni and cheese and that’s just to name a few.
Each month the menu is different-- the standard box comes with lots of meat, frozen veggies, pasta and milk. Then you can add specials.
Martin Machen works forAngel Food Ministries, “Boxes like Senior and convenience- 10 TV dinners, nutritionally balanced for 28 dollars, allergen free food box and seafood food box.”
Fred Franklin said, “I buy every month. Which do you pick? What I do is buy a basic unit, normal box then I try to buy one of two specials, one I really like is the fresh fruits and veggies.”
All boxes are less than 35 dollars. The standard box is packed with 60 dollars worth of food for half the price.
What’s even better news is anyone can buy from angel food—there are no requirements and they accept food stamps.
Franklin said, “Very, very good food. Good quality, good quantity, lots of good food.”
Louise Karriker buys angel food every month, she says she’d recommend the program to anyone, “it’s helped tremendously, made a vast difference in our budget.”
NBC 10 asked, “do you have people buy to make their money go farther?” Martin said, “A lot of people told me they couldn’t afford meat if not for angel food.”
And it’s easy to buy the angel food; you can do it online at the Angel Food Ministries Website or stop by a local host site.
In El Dorado that location is at St Mary’s Episcopal Church and in West Monroe you can stop by Faith United Methodist Church.
