Angel Food Ministries continues to offer low-cost food for families in the Parkland.
“If you eat, you qualify,” said Jeff Honea, Minister of Outreach for the Ministries. There is no requirement and anyone can make use of the ministry, which also accepts food stamps.
Honea said with the cost of food continuing to rise, the ministry is needed more than ever.
Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization that began in Georgia in 1994. The goal was to help neighbors who needed a hand up in a tough economic time. Today, Angel Food Ministries can be found in more than 3,200 communities in 35 states and helps feed more than 500,000 families a month.
Through churches and community organizations, Angel Food Ministries distributes food to those in need. For $30, those who participate can receive a box of food containing both fresh and frozen items worth as much as $78. A client may order as many boxes as he wants.
Leaders say the food is top quality, purchased from major food producers throughout the country. Participants select the food they want from a prepared list and it arrives regularly on a set day and time.
Churches that offer the Angel Food program include: First Assembly of God in Farmington, House of Praise in Desloge, Leadwood United Methodist Church, Ironton Church of the Nazarene, Valles Mines Worship Center and Faith Family Worship Center in Fredericktown.
