Works For Me Wednesday - Angel Food Ministries

With 5 kids, my pantry is almsot always bare. Someone should send a label with these children, "WILL EAT NONSTOP FOR NEXT 10 YEARS." So, I am always on the lookout for a way to avoid the grocery store while still keeping their bellies full.

For the last few months, our family has been enjoying the blessing of Angel Food Ministries. This is an organization that provides grocery relief for anyone who wants to participate. There are no restrictions regarding income or need. Anyone can participate.

Once a month you can order food from Angel Food. You pay about $25 for a box of food that is usually worth $60 or more. You pick up the box you ordered from a participating church. If you want, you can order more than 1 box and additional specialty boxes. You must order in advance and pay in advance. If you do not pick up your box at the designated time then the church donates that food to the needy.

Some of the food we've enjoyed includes hamburger patties, frozen sausage, blueberry muffins, waffles, fresh carrots, popcorn chicken, pork tenderloin, and more.

If you are interested in finding out if there is a church in your area participating go to and start ordering! Now, I'm on my way to pick up some more food : )

A church in our area just started this and I saw it being advertised. Now, I'm definitely going to check it out! Thank you!

What is the quality like?

We have used Angel Food a few times. They have lots of prepackaged food which we try to avoid but they are nice to use for emergency pantry items. If we had kids I am sure we would get it every month!

Mamabug: The quality is good. It's just as good as what you'd buy in a regular grocery store. There are not a lot of "whole foods" included and there are pre-packaged foods; but it works for us! Go to the website and you can see what's on the menu.

I've just heard there's one of these near me. I'll have to check it out.

This would also be good as a gift for a needy person you know. You don't have to tell them it's from you, just ring and run!

Does "Works For Me Wednesday" have any angst-relieving suggestions for when they close "Highway Farty?"

(Yes, I meant to say "Farty." The inflection the natives use on this word is hilarious.)
