    Thumbs up FYI - GREAT Food Budget Stretcher

    Just an FYI - Ever heard of Angel Food? It's not based on your income, or affliated with any specific religion. It IS a great way to stretch a food budget and the food quality if wonderful! This is the only way we can afford strip or rib eye steaks.. The $30.00 signature box they offer, which changes monthly, is well worth at least double the price.

    Check out their site with the link below to see if there is a host site near you....

    Welcome - Angel Food Ministries

    I think there is already a thread on Angel Food - not sure where though but many of us have tried it already. It really is a great way to save money! I did it a few times but honestly I was turned off by the meat quality, and since have become vegetarian. So it doesn't work for me anymore anyways. I kind of wish I could get a discounted meat-free box of all the veggies, cookies, rice, etc. that it includes!

    Hey, you never know...maybe they will add that in the future. I just noticed they now have an allergen-free box you can order (I didn't see that before).

    There is also a semi-volunteer program not related to this one called SHARE. It is aimed at the very poor, but accepts anyone, no income restrictions. But like this one, it requires a payment and small volunteer work. It can be as simple as helping a neighbor. The food is of very high quality. And they offer special boxes during the year for holidays, etc. Plus special meat boxes. All the meat etc. is frozen. They also have a vegetarian one which usually includes a frozen vegetarian entree. I used to get at least one box per month. It was more than worth the money. You may have to check google by state but I did find this:
