31 Ways to Save in 2011: Cut grocery expenses by using Angel Food Ministries


If you’re looking for ways to cut your grocery expenses, but you haven’t quite figured out coupons yet, Angel Food Ministries may be a good option to help you cut your grocery expenses (if you are a seasoned couponer, this is probably not the best option for you because you can probably get better deals by using coupons and tracking sales cycles).  Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization that has been helping to provide grocery relief to families across the country since 1994.

In the past Angel Food Ministries has offered a box of food each month for $30.  This year, they have a variety of boxes to choose from starting at just $16.  They have something for everyone, including a gluten free box for $25!  There is even an “After School Fruit and Veggie Box” which includes snacks such as applesauce, trail mix, carrots, celery, apples, pears, and oranges.  They also have steak and chicken boxes available!  There is no limit on the number of boxes you can order.

There are no income guidelines, but they do accept food stamps! All items are fresh and most of them are name brand. There are a variety of churches and other organizations in areas across the country that are responsible for distribution of the items. You have to place your order early in the month and then you pick it up on a specific date.
