Angel Food Ministries’ Expands Grocery Relief Services
Alaska Residents to Benefit from Angel Food’s Family Assistance Program
Wasilla, Alaska (August 04, 2009) – Angel Food Ministries (www.angelfoodministries.com), an organization dedicated to providing affordable, high-quality food to those in need, is proud to announce the expansion of services to the Wasilla, Alaska region. When the Angel Food’s grocery relief program makes the trek from Seattle into Alaska free of charge from the Wasilla host site, it will no doubt be extremely well received as Wasilla residents now actively ordering online for a staggering minimum of 1200 boxes for their very first order!
In response to current economic conditions, the demand for Angel Food’s services nationwide has increased significantly and expansion of services to the people of Alaska is one example of the amplified need for quality, affordable food, which is the core of Angel Food’s mission. Angel Food provides individuals and families with fresh, brand name food for a fraction of the retail price. By purchasing food in bulk, directly from some of the top suppliers in the country, food is discounted by up to 50 percent of retail. A standard medium-sized box of food may be purchased for $30, and contains top quality food staples from every food group, including chicken or beef, milk, eggs, vegetables and fruits. Each of the regular boxes of food feeds a family of four for about one week or a single individual for almost a month. The menu selections vary each month, and consist of both fresh and frozen items, saving Americans money with no sacrifice to quality. There is even a box geared towards the nutritional needs of senior citizens.
“The signature box at Wal-Mart alone is worth $120 here. There are so many people in this state that are starving. I can’t count how many I saw last year,” says Pastor Caroline of the Ministry of the Blessing. “I just know that this is going to blow up, I have people wanting orders all the way from Fairbanks and Valdez.”
The first distribution in Anchorage, Alaska will take place on August 25th at the Ministry of Blessing located at 7821 w. Parks Hwy Wasilla, Alaska 99654. Food distribution will take place from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Angel Food Ministries’ services are for everyone, regardless of economic circumstances. There are no limits to the quantity of boxes per individual, nor are there any applications or qualifications for eligibility.
Anyone who wishes to make use of Angel Food’s services can call 1-888-819-3745 or visit www.angelfoodministries.com to find the nearest host site.
