Stretching Your Grocery Budget

It’s no surprise that many of us are looking to save money and cut back wherever we can. Since groceries can be a large part of your budget, I wanted to pass on some good news. What if I told you that you could purchase food for a family of four that would last about a week and only spend about $31 (plus tax)? And what if I told you that this was first-quality, restaurant-grade food, not seconds, day-old, or fresh produce that would need to be used immediately? Would you believe me?

It’s true.

The service is Angel Food Ministries. They have been around since 1994 and started in Georgia. They now have host sites throughout the country; you can find one close to you through the search feature on their site. This is how it works: you order and prepay for the food boxes you would like — and there are plenty to choose from, including a food box that is allergen free. Then, you pick up your food on the designated pick-up day at your host site. There are no applications or income restrictions. What’s also great is that they accept food stamps for people who are on assistance, making their food stamp dollars stretch even further.

I encourage you to check it out. Right now, Angel Food Ministries is also accepting advance orders for Thanksgiving and Christmas, which will be delivered in November and December respectively. Even if you don’t want to participate in Angel Food Ministries’ program for your own grocery needs, consider purchasing a gift card that you or your church can pass along to someone in need. Angel Food Ministries gladly welcomes everyone to participate in their program.

  1. Great post! I have had a few newlywed friends use this and have only heard great things about it. Maybe I will have to see if it is available close to me…
