Angel food ministries: sounds like a good deal

I'm wondering if any of my readers have experience with Angel Food Ministries?

For thirty dollars, you get quite a bit of food.  This isn't a charity thing for poor folks; it's for anybody.  Cliff just talked to his brother, Phil, who has been taking advantage of this for a long time.   He was especially happy with the bacon-wrapped beef fillets they got this month.

You can go HERE and click on the dropdown thingie to choose your state and see what you'd have gotten in January, or what you would get in February if you participated.  There are also meat packages available in addition to the regular unit.  This looks like a real bargain, to me.  The meat, according to the website, is restaurant quality.

I doubt I'll be taking advantage of it; there's too much stuff I don't need this month.  For instance, I'm already stocked up on peanut butter, and that's one of the items.  I also have all the potatoes Cliff and I will use in the next month.  Another problem is that much of the food is highly processed, which means lots of salt.  We try to avoid salt in this house.  And we have quite a bit of pork in our freezer, so we wouldn't be needing that.

If they come up with a bundle that I can live with, I'll surely give it a try; I think it would be a wonderful idea for a family, because if nothing else, it would give some variety to their meals.

I haven't tried it yet but have been thinking about it. One of my readers uses it every month. That was how I found out about it. Helen

The work table crew take adavantage of the Angel Food.  Whatever we don't like we swap each other, or just give it to them.  I have even passed, stuff to you. It's not diet friendly, but it's food for those who need it.  I really like there chicken boxes, not a beef fan.  Sometimes, they ordered the $25.00 and I would just order the box stuff.

I have bought it before and it is a good deal. Need to buy it again. I was thinking that they had a fruit and vegetable box?? Wishing you a wonderful Sunday. Janie

One of my cousins lives in Colorado and she always emails me that she is going to get her "share" which costs the exact same amount and she said it is great.  I hadn't heard of the Angel Food Ministries until I read it here today. The closest one to me is probably about a half an hour away. I would like to try it and I think my youngest son would like it too so if two of us drive there it would be more cost effective regarding gas.
There is a food bank in my neighborhood located in one of the church parking lots that anyone can go to and they give free fruits and veggies once a week. The grocery stores donate their excess.  I have had the best watermelon I ever tasted from there.  I have also tasted many items I would not have ever tried too.  Exotic fruits from faraway places.

Ha I just checked it out and sucks to live in WI as they are not one of the states that do this :(

You could donate one or two items to someone else who is getting a box - I guess you would have to decide if what you do want out of a box is worth $30. I see there is a site about half an hour away from me - thanks for the info - I am going to look into it.

I've never heard of it, but I will check it out.  I think it would be a nice way to order for a family that you know could use a little extra help.

I have gotten it on occasion. Some of the food is tyucky. I pick and choose. I do like the chicken fritters. I do not fry them but cook in oven instead. careful with the meat packages. Sometimes it is cheaper to buy at store. The ribs are GREAT though!
