EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – A local food program is saving families hundreds of dollars on groceries. Living Word Christian Center is one of 36 host sites in the state for Angel Food Ministries.
Every last Saturday of the month families come to pick up a variety of fresh fruits, veggies, meats and deserts. A person goes to angelfoodministries.com and orders a box of food for just $30 dollars. They would pay $65 for the same thing in a discount grocery store.
One box of food feeds a family of four for a week. Angel Food Ministries caters to 500 thousand families across the country in 43 states. It has been a huge help in this tight economy.
Irene Collins says, “the benefit is I’m saving a lot of money. Its made a huge impact on my budget and so then I can pay off my debt and other things. ”
Pastor Phil Winn says “Families who are trying to stretch dollars, they will find they can recieve food at a discounted price and receive it in a place of dignity.”
People can pay online with a credit card or at the church with cash, food stamps or money orders.
Anyone can take advantage of the program. Just go to angelfoodministries.com for more information.
