Angel Food Ministries August menu available; order date set for tomorrow

Earlier this year, St. Matthew Church began hosting Angel Food Ministries, with the help of several other area churches.
Based in Georgia, Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing grocery relief and financial support to communities throughout the United States.
Many people struggle each month to stretch their grocery budget, and area churches hope this program can provide some relief for area residents.
Angel Food is “restaurant grade” meat, frozen vegetables, fruits, dairy products and more, which are acquired through involvement with only the best producers/vendors of high quality name brand foods. It never includes “seconds” or “day old” products.
Each month, order forms including the menu will be made available through area churches for those who wish to purchase food that month.
A different menu is produced each month, at a cost of $30.
Participants who order the main menu may also purchase monthly specials at a great price.
Orders must be pre-paid by the specified date and pick-up will be held at St. Matthew Church.
Payments accepted include money order, cash, or the Access Card.
Personal checks will not be accepted.
This month’s orders will be accepted between 3 and 6 p.m. on August 8 and distribution will be August 23.
