Angel Food Ministries To Distribute Holiday Grocery Relief
Angel Food Ministries, an organization dedicated to providing high-quality food at low-costs, to anyone who wishes to participate, has just expanded their meal offerings to include a specialty Christmas Box which includes everything needed for a traditional holiday celebration.
Host sites are now taking orders throughout the country, and will be distributing the meals in time for individuals and families to enjoy Christmas Dinner. Each Christmas Box contains enough food for 6 people and costs only $35.
Angel Food Ministries' services are for everyone, regardless of economic circumstances. There are no limits to the quantity of boxes per individual, nor are there any applications or qualifications for eligibility. Angel Food provides participants with fresh, high-quality, brand name food for a fraction of the retail price. By purchasing food in bulk, directly from some of the top suppliers in the country, food can be discounted by up to 50% of retail.
A standard medium-sized box of food may be purchased for $30, and contains top quality food staples from every food group, including chicken or beef, milk, eggs, fresh vegetables and fruits. Each of the regular boxes of food feeds a family of four for about one week, or a single individual for almost a month. Menu selections vary each month and there is even a box geared towards the nutritional needs of senior citizens.
In response to current economic conditions, Angel Food has stepped up their efforts to meet the growing needs nationwide by adding new distribution centers and hosts sites as quickly and as efficiently as possible. The demand for Angel Food's services has increased substantially, with September and October shattering all previous months' orders.
Today, Angel Food Ministries serves hundreds of thousands of families across 37 states and the District of Columbia. Angel Food Ministries helps every local "host site" with direct financial donations in proportion with the number of units distributed from a site. Since 1994, millions of dollars has been donated back to houses of worship, community centers and other "host sites" throughout the country. At the core of Angel Food's mission is the promise of fresh food and quality nutrition.
