    Grocery prices are amazingly location-dependent.

    I was shocked to see the price of cauliflower here in the Southwest -- $1.89 PER POUND. Not per each.

    And, at our trendy farmers' market, fresh spinach runs $2 .... PER QUARTER POUND. Yup. $8/lb for fresh spinach. (It is cheaper at the grocery store, but I'm used to the Midwest, where my Farmers' Market was bargain-priced.

    That's not bad either! I am not much of a coupon user so this is great for us and only $25.

    Thanks!

    I never get it though. I can get those things for less than $15 at the commissary...plus I make homemade hot pockets (dh doesn't like the Hot Pockets brand/frozen ones).

    I also don't like how they don't tell you what the produce is. It would be my luck, I'd buy a package and the produce would be something like beet greens and avacado (which I'm allergic too lol). Plus, they say it's subject to change. I don't like not knowing what I'm getting lol.

    Yes, Yankee Mom,

    If it were a good enough deal without the unknowns, then you could take it. But I think the Food $ense prices look on the high side.

    Ouch!!! I just bought a two pound bag of spinach for $2 and three pounds of tomatoes for $1. I also got three huge bunches of bananas for $1. We're really lucky with our market downtown. The deals aren't always great. I couldn't afford produce if I had to pay those prices you listed. As far an AFM goes, we do have it here, but I've never gotten it. My dh can't eat any pork and I try to stay away from processed foods and anything breaded as well. I had a really bad experience with Hot Pockets last year and there's no way I'll buy them again. I think spam! It is better fried than typedspam! It is better fried than typedspam! It is better fried than typedspam! It is better fried than typedspam! It is better fried than typedspam!

We do all of our meat purchases in bulk so we get meat fairly cheap and we also make vats of sauce at a time. One of those jars of sauce would cost us ten cents to make from scratch. I guess how good of a deal it is depends on your area and eating habits. Unfortunately, a lot of it would go to waste here so not much of a deal for us

    My friend in Indiana who uses AFM is happy with the quality. So is her fussy family. In fact, in the year she's been using it, she's only complained about 1 or 2 items.

    Default Angel Food Ministries, would you use it?

    I am not low income, and while it is not a low income organization, this is who it tends to be frequented by most. Would it be inappropriate to use it.

    It is a great deal, for example for $25 you would get the following this month:
    (1) 4 lb. I.Q.F Chicken Thighs
    (1) 12 in. Supreme Pizza
    (1) 2 lb. Banquet Lasagna Dinner
    (1) 1 lb. Chicken Breast Fajitas
    (1) 12 oz. Philly Steak Portions
    (1) 2 lb. Popcorn Chicken
    (1) 16 oz. Smoked Sausage
    (1) 2 lb. Breaded Frying Chicken
    (1) 10 ct. Flour Tortilla
    (1) 2 lb. Fresh Yellow Onions
    (1) 16 oz. Gourmet Bean Soup
    (1) 24 oz. Home-Style Hash Browns
    (2) 7 oz. Healthy Steamed & Seasoned Vegetables
    (1) 7.5 oz. Mac & Cheese
    (1) 16 oz. Frozen Baby Carrots
    (1) 16 oz. California Blend Veggies
    (1) Each Dessert Items
    (1) Each Dozen Fresh Eggs
    You can also buy these additional items:

    #1. July Combo Box $18.00
    (2-10oz. T-Bones, 2-8oz. N.Y. Strips, 2-10oz. Sirloin Steaks)
    #2. Grill Box $18.00
    (4-8oz. K.C. Strip Steaks, 4-4oz. Boneless Pork Chops,
    2 lbs. Center Cut Beef Ribs, 4-4oz. Hamburger Patties)
    #3. 8 lb. Lean Beef Home-Style Hamburger Box $17.00
    (16-8oz. Patties)
    #4. Stuffed Chicken Breast Combo Box $18.00
    (4-6oz. Chicken Cordon Bleu, 4-6oz.Broccoli & Cheese,
    4-6oz. Chicken Kiev)
    Obviously this would great reduce our grocery bill each month, and is a great bargain. I just don't know what is PC, when it comes to using such organizations.

    This sounds similar to the SHARE food program. I was always hesitant to use this as I thought someone else probably needed it more than my family. Then, I was approached by the person organizing it in our area. There are families that truly rely on the program, and she was trying to find more people to participate because the program was in danger of being dropped in my area. So, because a few more families started to participate, this will remain in place!

    I would definately recommend that you try it.

    I've gotten the Angel Food boxes for the last 5 months and love it. The food is very good quality. I would definitely try it for a month if I were you.

    We are very low-income, but try to eat healthy. I would not use Angel Food Ministries, or the SHARE program because too many items are high in fat, sodium, and refined carbs. We don't eat things like smoked sausage, or Banquet Lasagna.

    I went to a garage sale at a church over the weekend and they handed me one of the flyers.I do not feel the need to use the program, but I looked the flyer over.I felt I could get similar prices if I shopped around, but with gas prices so high, at least could get several items in one place. I do not consider most of the food choices to be healthy, and I would not use most of the items. For us, it would not be saving anything. I think if the program is open to all, it would be a personal choice whether to participate or not.
