Angel Food Ministries (AFM) is a non-profit, non-denominational organization

Pastors Joe and Linda Wingo founded Angel Food Ministries in1994 to help local families in Monroe GA.

The first Angel Food distribution fed 34 families. Over the next years, other churches wanted to be involved, and Angel Food began feeding hundreds of families across the southeast. Now, Angel Food feeds over 500,000 families a month in 35 states.

There are no restrictions, conditions or forms to fill out to purchase Angel Food. The food relief program is open to one and all. Anyone may purchase an unlimited number of boxes of Angel Food by placing an order with a local Angel Food host site

Each month's menu is different and consists of fresh, frozen and packaged food.
Angel Food is purchased from the nation’s top food suppliers. Providing quality, nutritious food at significant discounts on a regular basis is one practical way to give people a “hand up” during difficult times. The cost for a box of Angel Food is $30. There is no purchase limit for boxes of Angle Food. There are no applications or qualifications necessary to purchase.

Comparison shopping nationwide in various grocery stores has revealed that the average retail value for the same food items would be approximately $65. Generally, one box of Angel Food assists in feeding a family of four for about one week or a single senior citizen for almost a month

The August $30.00 box contains the following items:

1.5 lb. Ribeye Steaks (4 x 6 oz.)
5 lb. Chicken Leg Quarters
28 oz. Chicken Breast Nuggets
28 oz. Salisbury steak Dinner Entrée
32 oz. Breaded Chicken Breast Filets
16 oz. Smoked Sausage
16 oz California Blend Frozen Vegetables
16 oz. Frozen Carrots

16 oz. Bean Soup Mix
1 lb. Rice
9 oz Instant Potatoes (14 servings)
15 oz. Sliced Peaches
32 oz Borden Shelf Stable Milk
One Dozen Eggs
One Dessert Item

If you purchase a $30.00 dollar box you have an option of purchasing as many specialty boxes that you want each box cost $20.00

A typical specialty box contains:
1.5 lb Baseball Cut Sirloin Filet (4 x 6 oz.) (Thick-Cut)
2 lbs Juicy Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
2 lbs St. Louis-Style Ribs
1.5 lb Hamburger Patties (4 x 6 oz.)

If you don’t have a need for Angel food, please consider purchasing a box of food for a needy family or retired person in your area.

There are several churches in the Fayette county area that volunteer their time and facilities to take orders and package this food with out them Angel food would not be possible.

I am from N.C. and I remember they had this same service where you could get food.

Thanks for telling about it. It's a great way to show God's love by giving someone you know or don't know one and continue to do it for them.

Thanks for your kindness. Alot of times we take for granted that people have enough but they don't.

How are you doing? You and your family are in my prayers.

Angel Food is a very important program that serves thousands of people. Joe and Linda are two very special people who have devoted their lives and resources to offering a hand up to many people.

Sometimes we do assume that our neighbors, friends and the homeless have enough to eat. A lot of the time this is not the case.
I am sure anyone in need would appreciate the helping hand.

Our family is doing fine and I remain in good spirits and look forward to tomorrow and many more days ahead.

I thank you for your prayers and hope you and your family are doing well.
