Angel Food - Frugal Update #6 - Part 2

We picked up our second month's Angel Food Ministries food from a local church this morning.

From the Angel Food Website:
What is Angel Food Ministries? Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing grocery relief and financial support to communities throughout the United States. The program began in 1994 with 34 families in Monroe, Georgia (between Atlanta and Athens), and has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of families every month across 32 states. Angel Food Ministries crosses denominational lines and has spread the good news of the gospel of Christ through salvation tracts that are placed in each food order. You can learn more at their website www.angelfoodministries.com

This is the January Regular Menu - Cost- $30.00
1.25 lbs. Bacon Wrapped Beef Filets (5 x 4 oz)
4 lbs. Individually Frozen Chicken Leg Quarters
2 lbs. Lean Hamburger Steaks (4 x 8oz.)
1.5 lbs. Boneless Pork Roast
1.25 lbs. Meaty Beef Short Ribs
20 oz. Supreme Pizza8 pack Hot Dogs
3 lbs. Fresh Apples
35 oz. Frozen French Fries
16 oz. Frozen Green Beans
16 oz. Onion Rings
14 oz. Ketchup
26 oz. Pasta Sauce
16 oz. Pasta
16 oz. Dried Pinto Beans
7.5 oz. Boxed Mac & Cheese
6 chocolate pudding cups

We also purchased the Special #1 - 5½ lb. Steak and Meat Combo Box - $20.001.5 lb. T-Bone Steaks (2 x 12 oz.), 1 lb. Sirloin Strip Steak (2 x 8 oz.), 1 lb. Lean Hamburger Steaks (2 x 8 oz.), 1 lb. Boneless Center Cut Pork Chop (4 x 4 oz.), 1 lb. Italian Sausage)

All this food for $50!!!! We have decided to share our bounty with the local food pantry our church supports. We are donating the Ketchup (we already have 2 bottles), pasta and pasta sauce and the boxed macaroni and cheese. These are items for which they have an ongoing need.
Here are links to the Gather articles I read to learn about this amazing ministry.

No one asks about your income - even if you make $100,000 a year, you can participate in this ministry. The food is good quality and while it's not gourmet brands, it is certainly delicious and satisfies us just fine, as we buy many store brand products anyway.
