Angel Food Ministries

angelfoodI am not too proud to acknowledge when I need help but in the past I most certainly have been and there have been times when I was even too proud to acknowledge that I was hungry but had no food and no way to buy food to settle that hunger. Times are better for me now, we still struggle at times to make ends meet but there is never a time when I go to bed hungry but there are thousands of people out there who do because they have a case of the “prouds” or even the “ashamed’s”. The important thing to realize about the prouds or the ashameds is that they are what is inhibiting you from asking for help which could very well ease your hunger pains as well as your emotional hurt. We all feel too proud to ask for help at times or ashamed that we have failed in some aspect that has left us suffering the consequences but there is always a place to turn if you only look hard enough and put down those excuses.

I heard about Angel Food Ministries a while ago actually and only thought to look them up again today to recommend to a friend who is going through a rough patch financially. I will preface by telling you that even if you are not a church going, God fearing family that Angel Food Ministries is still going to help you – they are not based on you or your family’s affiliation with the church. What this amazing organization does is provides families with boxes of groceries at prices that certainly rival your local supermarket. Each box is filled with a combination of fresh and frozen items which are estimated to feed a family of four for a week or so and a single individual for almost a month! Each box costs $30 and there is no limit on how many boxes you can order. Even better than that there is no financial cut off point and no paperwork to fill in to qualify for using Angel Food Ministries and the food is of the same quality that you would find in your local store. You can order your boxes on their website and they are delivered to a local church in your community where you can pick them up. In addition to a monthly box order (previous to each month you can find the menu for the coming month’s box on their website) you can also order extra meat, produce and other specialty boxes to compliment your order – they even have specialty boxes for the holidays.

You can read a lot more about Angel Food Ministries including how they came to be over at their website and please remember that there is no reason that you should go to bed hungry, the help is there – all you need to do is ask.
