Angel Food Ministries.... Has anyone tried it yet?
This site was touted by Phenn awhile back. Checked it out. It looks GREAT! Looks like a GOOD bang for the buck! I'm considering it to help family members and some deserving down and outs in my circle.
My question is this: Anyone here tried it? There are those here that need and deserve help and now that I'm working again I want to chip in. Any opinions?

No, but our Ministry has provided the link to others. The nice thing about it is that everyone qualifies for it. Seems like a good program.
The Light of Life Ministry is not aligned with any man-made religious organizations for one simple reason. All man-made religious organizations have been found by Christ to bear only falsehoods and half-truths. We have been ordained to minister ONLY the Truth as relayed to us by the Father, Christ and the holy angels and holy ghosts appointed to guide and watch over our ministry.

It SEEMS outstanding. I'd like to give it a try. Just hoping that others will chime in with opinions. I think I may try the mid-size order for my Sister and B-in-law.
Comments?

Not worth it IMO. Maybe because I live in AZ and our food prices are low.

I did an item by item comparison of this weeks box and I would be paying 20% MORE by going through Angel Food.

If you live in a high cost of living area it could be a good deal.

O.K. there's one opinion. Good! We definatly DON'T live in a affluent area. Working poor and under-employed at best. Lots of folks can't get assistance due to "rules" about what they earned in previous years. (go figure). Virtually everyone here is in a tight.

Very few of my aquaintences are eligable for food stamps. (I'm sure you know the drill). BUT... $40.00 bucks to keep you afloat for a MONTH? Seems almost to good to be true. It would be nice to have a LITTLE variety from the beans and rice thing. Meat here is becoming affordable only to a few. Thank God I have chickens and rabbits!

Re: Angel Food Ministries.... Has anyone tried it yet?
Our church has been doing the "Angel Food Program" for about a year or so. My wife and I did not care for the food stuff but others can't seem to get enough. I think we really did not believe there was that great of a savings especially when you get those frozen items seasoned with seasons we don't like.

Customers or locals can order through our church and pick it up on a certain Saturday morning each month. Some churches purchase the food stuff,break it up and use it in the food pantry for the community.

I've tried it. The food is good. One problem I found is they pick what's in the package you purchase. You may like some of the things, but some things will be wasted if you don't like it all.
The biggest drawback though that I found was that you pay for whatever you get up front, but don't get the food for about a month. If I need food I don't need it in a month, I need it right then.

We participate every month. The food is good quality and it helps so much with prices getting out of hand these days.

Remember, if you are looking for help. THis is help. you can't be a picky eater. Ya get what they give you. When you order it is delivered to the pick up point once a month, so order enough for the month.

If you like eating GMO and highly processed chemicalized foods, it's a great deal. But then again, who can afford anything better?

And just what are you going to eat during that month while you are waiting to get the food from them?

I have never had their food, but some of my friends have used it and say this too. I was told it is like restaurant meals, the kind they heat and serve you. Tastes great, but if you are concerned about processing and chemicals may not be for you.
To have done anything just for money is to have been truly idle.

I used it for our family a few years ago while in Virginia - stopped after a few months. IMO, the food quality was very poor and poor selection for what my family eats.

btw - I'm the mother to 10 homeschooled children & happily married to their father.

I want to participate but there are 2 drawbacks for us -

1. you can only pick up the food on a Saturday which is the Sabbath, can't do that

2. Pork is among the meats they put in there, we don't eat pork per Lev. 11. I can't say I don't want it (they told me so) so I just would end up throwing it away.

Mopar,

You have a good point...but what about when we go go campmeeting, pay for our Sabbath meals in advance, and then go to eat the meals on Sabbath, prepared by the volunteer staff?

Or do you have another scenario for your family...?

It is not offered in my area, but I have read about it. I personally think you can do better by shopping sales at your own stores locally. You will be buying things that you know your family will eat, and not wasting money on stuff that they/you do not like. Also, I read that even if you do like what is in the box, you can often find it cheaper if you look for sales in your own area.

We pay for our food (grocery) that we eat on the Sabbath.

That is a gray area, not sure how to answer that.
