Angel Food Ministries

Are you familiar with Angel Food Ministries? It is a non-profit grocery assistance program that is available to everyone!

I often have people tell me that they want to spend less on their monthly household expenses, but they don't have time to clip coupons and seek out sales. I totally understand this. Coupon clipping is not for everyone in every stage or circumstance of life. But there are lots of savings strategies that families can utilize without ever clipping coupons. Angel Food Ministries is one of those strategies.

Here's how it works:

2. Check out the monthly menu and decide what your family needs.
3. Make your monthly order with the host site before the order deadline. (Payment is due when you order)
4. On distribution day, take a large box or bin to your distribution site and pick up your food. To save time and energy, you can pay for the next month's order on pick-up day if you like.

Angel Food Ministries is generally a very good deal for just about anybody's grocery needs, especially because it always includes plenty of meat, fruits and vegetables: items that very rarely go on sale or have coupons. For families that are not couponing, it is a fantastic deal for the amount of food you get. The key is that you must commit to using all the food and not letting it go to waste, even if it's something that is not a standard menu choice for your family.

Check out what you can get through Angel Food in September for only $30:

(3) 8 oz. ribeye steaks
(2) large split chicken breasts
(4) 6 oz. pork chops
(4) 6 oz. 100% white meat turkey burgers
4 lb. chicken thighs
1 lb. 80/20 lean ground beef
12 oz. deli sliced ham
1 lb. frozen sweet potatoes
1 lb. frozen green beans
15 oz. pears
12 oz. orange juice concentrate
3 lbs fresh idaho potatoes
3 lbs. fresh onions
2% shelf stable milk
1 dozen eggs
1 family dessert item

If you try to replicate that box of food at your local grocer for under $30... you'll quickly learn what a steal this is.

In addition to the monthly standard box offered above, every month there are several other options to choose from as well. This months additional options include:

Frozen and Allergen-free food box for $35 (contains 5lbs of frozen foods and
4.5 lbs of dry mix products that are safe for people with peanut, soybean, milk, fish tree nut and gluten allergies!)
Senior Convenience Meal Box for $28
7 lb. Assorten Meat Grill Box for $23
5 lb. Assorted Meat and Chicken Combo for $22
11 lb. Split Chicken Breast Box for $22
Premium Fresh Fruit and Veggie Box for $22

P.S. My apologies for the formatting issues on this post. Blogger isn't cooperating with me today! I have tried to fix it, to no avail... and finally decided that you are smart folks and can figure out what I'm trying to say here. :-)
