A food ministry with a servant's heart

River of Life Assembly of God in Cold Spring has been accepted as a new host site for Angel Food Ministries.

What is Angel Food?

Angel Food is a nonprofit, non-denominational food program dedicated to providing monthly food assistance to 500,000 families in 35 states across America.

Every month, Angel Food provides boxes of high quality, cost-effective food items at over half-off grocery store prices. Each unit contains enough food to assist in feeding a family of four for about one week, or a single senior for almost a month.

Who is Angel Food for?

Angel Food is open to everyone. There are no applications or pre-qualifiers to participation and no limit to the number of food boxes an individual or family can purchase.

How much does Angel Food cost?

Each month Angel Food distributes a menu of high-quality food items worth over $60 for the low price of $30. Your order must be paid in full when you place your order. (Cash, checks, credit card, money order or food stamps are accepted.)

NOTE: Angel Food charges a small $2 transaction fee for the convenience of using credit and debit cards. This fee helps to offset the actual bank fees that result from the acceptance of these cards. The fee is the same regardless of size of the order. No fee is charged for the use of cash, money orders or food stamps.

Additional monthly specials can now be ordered individually with or without the purchase of a Signature box.
