Groceries: 50% Off

(MONEY TALKS NEWS) – While the jobless rate is higher than it’s been in years, Americans are struggling to pay for everyday needs. For many families, keeping food on the table is becoming more difficult.

“It’s tight, real tight”, William Tushinski tells Money Talks News. He and wife Gay have three growing children at home and as you can imagine, the grocery bill is high: $200-$300 per week. “We spend a lot of money on food, especially with a teenage son” Tushinski says with a nervous smile.

While a lot of programs exist to help families find food, one organization has taken the lead in affordable groceries, even up to 50% off.

About Angel Food

With a heart to help others and a generous spirit, Joe and Linda Wingo founded Angel Food Ministries in 1994 to provide food for friends and neighbors who were struggling financially. Today the Angel Food program now is helping provide food relief to more than 500,000 families each month.

Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit organization that buys meat, frozen vegetables, fresh fruit and even desserts from major food suppliers at wholesale. Then volunteers divide food into individual boxes and distribute them through churches. Find an Angel Food location near you

With all the good the Ministry has brought to American’s struggling with putting food on the table, the organization has seen some bad. Some members of the Angel Food Ministry, including its founder, are being investigated by the FBI for alleged financial irregularities. They have denied any wrongdoing.

A “Signature Box” will cost you $35. It’s worth about twice that. And feed a family of four for a week. Picking up the food box is also convenient. Volunteers streamline the process with drive-thrus. The program is open to anyone.

“Senior citizens actually break down in tears and thank me, because they can actually have their medicine and eat food and have food in the freezer” Director Jewel Rivers tells Money Talks News.

Bottom line, if you’re having trouble keeping food on the table, or just like the idea of a bargain, Angel Food looks appetizing.
