Ok, I was actually going to introduce new things tomorrow, but thought of this little post for today so here I am starting something new that I will try to keep on top of. I thought giving each day a topic might be helpful to keep me on track, plus post my reviews as time allows. If that even makes sense at 11:30pm!
Without further adieu, let me introduce you to Faith and Family Reviews Thrifty Thursdays or FFR Thrifty Thursdays!
This week someone on our homeschool loop reminded me of a ministry who helps those in need. We were told about them when my husband was laid off work, however, never found ourselves to the point of really needing to use them. Also, they seem to have changed in the way they do things in the last two years as well.
The ministry is called Angel Food Ministries. Now, I have not used their services, but another person I “know” has. She recommended them and stated that she was surprised by the quality of the food. So I thought that this might help someone out there or provide you with a way to help someone else.
Here’s exactly what she said:
I know this has been posted before. The last time it was talked about not many of us had tried this for getting really good food and some really great prices…
I have had a chance to buy several times and can tell you from experience that the food is great and the prices are really good.
In these hard times a great way to save some money.
Here is the website for angel food ministries.
You can order online or over the phone use your zip code to find a location close to you.
Hope this helps you out.
When you go to their website you can put in your zipcode to see if there are any local distribution centers near you, then you can look at their monthly menu to see what “sales” and specials they have going on. The prices seemed very reasonable, they take food stamps for those that may be using them during these hard times.
