Angel Food Ministries

I was given this information about a ministry that is helping people who are trying to make ends meet in the economy that we are in and helping spread the Gospel at the same time. Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing grocery relief and financial support to communities throughout the United States. The program began in 1994 with 34 families in Monroe, Georgia (between Atlanta and Athens), and has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of families every month across 35 states. Angel Food Ministries crosses denominational lines and has spread the good news of the gospel of Christ through salvation tracts that are placed in each food order.

There are no qualifications, minimums, income restrictions, or applications. Everyone is encouraged to participate. Some churches even encourage participants to apply the money they saved to help someone else in need.

So you go the web page look at the menu, decide what you want to order. Then you find a local site in your community. After you find the local site, you contact them and they give you all the additional information that you need.

I know that right now we are all trying to make ends meet and trying to save where we can. I know that in our household we spend a good amount on food and everything helps, coupons, discounts, promotions. So I thought that this would help and each time you order a unit from the host site that host site receives $1 to their benevolence fund. Also the gospel is shared in each unit.

Please check it out and let me know what you think. I am excited to find out what is in store and to know that God answers even the everyday prayers. May God bless you and your families as you are frugal during these hard economic times.
