Angel Food Ministries’ Expands Grocery Relief Services
Washington Residents to Benefit from Angel Food’s Family Assistance Program
Sumner, Washington (October 24th, 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 Sumner, Washington region.
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 Washington 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.
“Angel Food is going to be a big blessing to me. I am a senior, living on social security, and I am disabled. I don’t have much money and it is difficult for me to get to the grocery store,” said Cora Johnson, a Washington native. “With Angel Food I will be able to get pre-packaged meals so all I have to do is heat them up, and the price is amazing!”
The first distribution in Sumner, Washington will take place on October 24th, 2009 at Calvary Community Church, 15116 Gary Street, Sumner, WA 98390. Food distribution will take place between 9:00am – 12:00pm.
Cavalry Community Church welcomes more than 1800 families through their doors every Sunday. “We feel humbled and blessed to be the first Angel Food host site for the State of Washington. What an amazing opportunity in this economy to be able to help people with their food budgets by offering Angel Food right here in our region”, said Kathy Saunders, Director of Benevolence: Calvary Community Church. 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.
