Angel Food Ministries: Yah or Nay?

Angel Food Ministries – some say it's the key to an affordable grocery bill, others say it's an all-round bad deal? What do you say?

About Angel Food Ministries:

Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization with a mission of providing affordable food and financial relief throughout the United States.

How It Works:

Each month Angel Food Ministries puts together a menu designed to feed a family of four for a week or a single individual for a month. They then sell the items on the menu in a box – referred to as a unit – at a deeply-discounted price. According to their website, a typical unit sells for $30, but has a retail value of around $60.

Who Is Eligible:

Everyone. There are no income requirements, applications to fill out or other qualifiers.

How to Order:

To order from Angel Food Ministries you'll need to locate a host site in your area (typically a church), and then place your order through the host site. Each host sets its own order deadline, pick up time and other program specifics.

What You'll Get:

The menu varies from month to month, but always includes a mix of fresh and frozen foods. Count on getting meats, fruits and vegetables, side dishes and a dessert item at minimum. You may purchase as many units as you would like – be it one unit or 10 – so the program can be tailored to your needs.

I have done this before and the food is really good and it is decently priced as well. I would suggest it to anyone.

I got it once also and thought it was pretty gross. My friend and my husband say I am picky , but you could tell the meat was cheap and nothing was good to me. But, I guess I am a bit picky about my food.

Thought about doing it, but got guilted out of it.  It seems like a good deal.

I've tried it, but wasn't too thrilled. There were a lot of things in the main box that I just couldn't eat. The meat was good, but some of the other stuff was pretty scary looking. Plus, honestly, I can get better deals couponing, and get only stuff I need and want.
