Angel Food Ministries - February 2009

Just wanted to plug in my monthly reminder about the Angel Food Ministries program because the deadline for February ordering is coming up here quickly. Some host sites you have to go to in person to order, others have online ordering. Check the website for a host site near you to find out how and when to order.

For the host site in my area the last day for online ordering is February 15th.

You can purchase multiples of the basic box of course, and there is also a Senior basic box that is made of home-style frozen meals, perfect for an elderly parent or neighbor.  If you purchase at least one of those two basic boxes, you may then order some of the specials. 

For February there are 6 other specials that you can order, including a fruit and veggie box, a tangerine box, a sides and fixin's box, a fajita box, a steak box and a mixed meat box. The full February menu is posted below so check it out for the specifics on all the specials. 

Angel Food Ministries is for
everyone. You don't have to meet any eligibility requirements, it's not charity, or welfare, or a government assistance program or anything like that. 

It is most like a food co-op - a large group of people purchasing together at a discounted price.

It has really been a blessing for our family in these tough economic times, but if you're blessed enough not to need any help with your grocery budget, I'll bet you know someone who could use some help. Why not order one or more of the basic boxes to provide to families that you know of who are in need? It's a great way to tithe from your blessings, give back to someone in need, or simply pay it forward. I'll bet whoever you help with one will be grateful that you thought of them.

I was hungred and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in. Naked and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.... Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
(Matt. 25:35-40)

  1. *sigh* someday I'll live somewhere that offers this. or maybe someday I'll start up a host site with my local church :)

  2. There ya go! I have no idea what it takes but I think there's actually some information on the site about that. I feel blessed that we have several sites along the Gulf Coast. I had heard about this program when I was working but didn't know much about it. After Hurricane Katrina came along and I lost my job, there was an article in the paper about it. That sure came at the right time for me!

  3. Angel Food is a big help to a lot of people. For $30 you get a box of food worth about $60, and the menu varies each month. It’s not just for lower-income families – anyone and everyone qualifies to participate. It’s really a great system. Local Angel Food host sites are listed at

  4. I found this coupon code, it is valid for Angel Food Ministries food boxes, and gives you 10% off a signature box. Angel Food Coupon Code “10sig98″. The problem is that I believe it is limited and expires in July. Pass it around
