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.
