Angel Food MinistriesThis is a featured page

Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing grocery relief and financial support to communities throughout the United States. The program began in 1994 with 34 families in Monroe, Georgia (between Atlanta and Athens), and has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of families every month across 32 states. Angel Food Ministries crosses denominational lines and has spread to the Central Texas area with a distribution site at Hill Country Nazarene Church (HCNC) on Bagdad Road in Cedar Park. Because we see the enormous ministry potential of AFM, CEC is partnering with HCNC.


Blessings by the box -- Angel Food’s groceries are sold in a quantity that can fit into a medium-sized box at $30 per unit. Each month’s menu is different than the previous month and consists of both fresh and frozen items with an average retail value of approximately $50. Comparison shopping has been done across the country in various communities using a wide range of retail grocery stores and has resulted in the same food items costing from between $42 and $78.

Generally, one unit of food assists in feeding a family of four for about one week or a single senior citizen for almost a month.

AngelFood is now offering Senior Boxes. These boxes include 10 different individual pre-cooked nutritious meals. Each meal has no added sodium, is low in fat, and is nutritionally balanced for seniors with 3 oz. of protein, two vegetables or fruit, and a starch.

Now Allergen Free !!! Angelfood has a box that addresses those diets that eliminate allergic reactions. The food is processed to eliminate the eight top serious allergens: Peanuts, Soybeans, Milk, Eggs, Fish, Crustacea, Tree Nuts and Gluten (wheat, rye and barley). Great for children and adults! SEE WHAT'S OFFERED BY GOING TO THE ORDER FORM.
All the food is all the same high quality one would purchase at a grocery store. There are no secondhand items, no damaged or out-dated goods, no dented cans without labels, no day-old breads and no produce that is almost too ripe.

Also offered are specialty boxes such as steaks, chicken and pork. Many participants in this bonus program appreciate the expanded choices. Additionally, there is no limit to the number of units or bonus foods an individual can purchase, and there are no applications to complete or qualifications to which participants must adhere. Angel Food Ministries, like most all other retail grocery stores, also participates in the U.S. Food Stamp program, using the Off-Line Food Stamp Voucher system.

How the Program works -- Food sales and distribution are handled by church host sites such as Hill Country Nazarene Church. Currently CEC is partnering with Hill Country Nazarene Church to deliver this program to CEC and needy families in our area.

Orders are submitted online (see link below) each month. These orders are then turned in to the Angel Food main office in Monroe, Georgia.
Orders go in early in the month and food boxes arrive at the end of the month. Order distribution dates are shown on the website and on the order form. All food boxs are distributed at Hill Country Nazarene Church at 1750 Bagdad Rd 1.5 miles east of FM1431 from 8:30 AM- 9:30 AM.



CEC Ministry Opportunities:
  • Provide low cost groceries to cut monthly food budget and use the difference to pay off other debts with the goal of being personally DEBT FREE.
  • Donate food to needy families especially during the summer months when kids don’t have reduced or free lunch from school. See the order form to DONATE A BOX.
  • Stock our FOOD MINISTRY PANTRY to have food to cook for the sick and infirmed.
  • Give needed items to HILL COUNTRY COMMUNITY MINISTRY for secondary distribution.
