I decided to give it try

We don't have Angel Ministries here, but we do have a food basket. It's more of a small coop operation. There is no limit on how many orders you can submit, for $8 you get a fruit and vegetable, 2 to 3 types vegetables plus potatoes, and 2 to 3 types of fruit. For 12 you can get a meat order, this is typically a lean ground beef, a beef or pork roast and chicken of some kind. From the reviews i've heard from people, it's very worth the money, they purchase from wholesaler, it's not seconds or anything like that, just the power of numbers. So I'm going to do an double order, it's $40. Not a big deal, and see if it is worth it. I'd do a single, but then the meat typically won't feed us all, since it needs to provide lunch for dh the next day and the daycare kids. Then I'll do a price comparison to see what it would have cost me otherwise. And go from there.

Something to make the budget stretch.

I wish I had one in my area. It sounds like it would be very beneficial.
Good luck.
I wish we had something like this in our area, since Angel Food Ministries doesn't make sense for those of us who are vegetarians and vegans. I'd love to get fruits and veggies for such a good price without also having to take meat and other things I don't eat.
It sure sounds like you should give it a try! We have Angel Food here, but I have never done it.
That sounds like a great plan to me. I wish we had something like that here.
I also wish we had something like that here. We don't have Angel Ministries either...:(
We don't have Angel Ministry but in teh summer & fall the organic farmer get to together and offer something similar that I am eagerly awaiting for this year.
Good for you! And lucky you. We don't have Angel Food Ministries that I'm aware of. But we do have different organizations providing vegetable bins for people. One is for low income people. Mostly it's starchy vegetables and not enough fruit though. Instead we opted to go through the local organic food store and buy a bin a week of produce only. They determine what goes in from your list of acceptable foodstuff. You get a discount on the food by buying by the bin. I'm looking forward to our first bin sometime in February.

You can google angel food ministries and type in you zip code to find where the closest host site is and find one. I have never done one for my self but did donate to a needed family at Thanksgiving. I plan on trying next month Feb. for me and my mom. She want do it unless I try. They have the senior meals. Already cooked just heat and serve. 10 meals heat and serve. $21. The lady that is in charge works for our local college teenage group and the church that is the host site is about a mile from my house. I hope it turns out good. Just google and check and see.
