Angel Food's groceries are sold in a quantity that can fit into a
medium-sized box at $25 per unit. Each month's menu is different than the
previous month and consists of both fresh and frozen items with an
average retail value of approximately $50. Comparison shopping has been
done across the country in various communities using a wide range of
retail grocery stores and has resulted in the same food items costing from
between $42 and $78.
Generally, one unit of food assists in feeding a family of four for about one
week or a single senior citizen for almost a month. The food is all the same
high quality one would purchase at a grocery store. There are no
second-hand items, no damaged or out-dated goods, no dented cans
without labels, no day-old breads and no produce that is almost too ripe.
Also offered are specialty boxes such as steaks, chicken and pork. Many
participants in this bonus program appreciate the expanded choices.
Additionally, there is no limit to the number of units or bonus foods an
individual can purchase, and there are no applications to complete or
qualifications to which participants must adhere. Angel Food Ministries, like
most all other retail grocery stores, also participates in the U.S. Food
Stamp program, using the Off-Line Food Stamp Voucher system
