For people who are on food stamps and having a hard time, there are places where you can buy
cheap food. Below are two suggestions: Angel Food Ministries and Share Colorado. They are nationwide and they are
often distributed through churches and community centers.
Angel Food Ministries
Angel Food Ministries has lots of distribution locations that you can buy them from in the
Kansas City and surrounding areas. They aren't free but they are deeply discounted food items and yes, they do
accept food stamps.
Ordering Angel Food
You have to order Angel Food by the middle of the month, and pay in advance, but you basically
get about $80 worth of food for $30. They have different packages to choose from and different bonus items. You can
buy more than one box. You can even order some Angel Food for others as gifts and they can pick the food up
themselves. If you have ordered some Angel Food, you pick it up at the end of the month and you have to be there
when they say or your food could be donated to charity.
How cost effective is Angel Food?
We did a quick price comparison and the food package we are getting this month for $30 is
basically a weeks worth of food but if we were to go and try to buy the food, there is no way we could get it for
$30. You can also buy multiple packages and save more money.
There is also a similar site to Angel Food Ministries called Share Colorado which is sponsored
by the Catholic Outreach. You preorder your food the same as Angel Food Ministries.
