The grocery purchase program had been available at one location or another in Monroe County, Mich., for about five years. The organization, which was based out of Monroe, Ga., started in 1994 as a way to help unemployed families who were not […]

I’ve been mentioning Angel Food Ministries since Monroe on a Budget was launched in January 2007, and have been buying Angel Food groceries off and on since spring 2008. (The original pickup site in Monroe County wasn’t a convenient location for me). I have found Angel Food to be a great compliment to the groceries […]

I don’t normally order the big produce boxes from Angel Food Ministries, but I did so for the March 2011 orders. It’s usually more food than we can make use out of. There are only two adults at home now. But after I saw what was in the box this time, I figured I could […]

This is going to sound terribly cliche for a Catholic family during Lent, but this is what I served for dinner tonight: fish and mac and cheese. The fish was Angel Food Ministries oven ready battered fish bites. They are GOOD! Yummy! I had seconds!!! I highly recommend these little fishies. The mac and cheese […]
