in the current economy, being able to save money is necessary. grocery costs are rising and paychecks are not.

angel food is not a food pantry or a low income service, it is nothing more than a grocery pick up location...with no store front. there are no qualifications or applications. in fact, it's so easy, i want to get orders every week. i check a box on the form, drop in a check and put it in a payment slot. i show up 2 weeks later and my food is ready for me. super duper easy.
Angel food's food is “restaurant grade” meats, frozen vegetables, fruits, dairy products, etc. which they acquire through involvement with only the best producers/vendors of high quality, “name brand” foods. Never “seconds” or “day old” type products are involved. and from my experience, it's fabulous!
$30 buys a family box that is suppose to be enough food to fully feed a family of 4 for one week. here's what came in my box in january:
4 lb. IQF Leg Quarters
4 oz. Beef Back Ribs
1 lb. 80/20 Lean Ground Beef
2 lb. Breaded Chicken Tenders
1.5 lb. Bone in Pork Chops (4 x 6oz.)
1 lb. Ground Turkey
18 oz. Stuffed Manicotti (Cheese)
12 oz. Smoked Sausage
Betty Crocker Seasoned Potatoes
7 oz. Cheeseburger Dinner
16 oz. Green Beans
16 oz. Baby Carrots
2 lb. Onions
1 lb. Pinto Beans
1 lb. Rice
7 oz. Blueberry Muffin Mix
10 ct. Homestyle Waffles
Dessert Item (cookies)
in addition to the main box, you can order senior or convenience meals that are healthy and pre-made so they are perfect for singles or for lunches/meals on the go. angel food also offers a box of additional meats or a fruit and veggie box in addition to the main box.
