Angel Food Ministries

With a heart to help others and a generous spirit, Joe and Linda Wingo founded Angel Food Ministries in 1994 to provide food for friends and neighbors who were struggling financially. Today, they are still doing the same thing. The Angel Food program now is helping provide food relief to more than 500,000 families each month.
There are 14 distribution sites within a 30 mile radius of New Smyrna Beach. The closest being Edgewater, Port Orange and Deland. Click here for all 14 locations.
Angel Food is not a Food Bank, they purchase high quality food at discount prices and sell it less expensively than grocery stores. In general you can get around $65.00 worth of food for $30.00. Each month therre is a different variety of food as well as specialty boxes. You can read more about how it works here.
This service was designed for people who may be having a hard time, laid off or temporarily in a tough economic situation. I know there are plenty of people like that in our area. Please check out their website and take advantage of the generosity of others.

I volunteer to distribute Angel Food in my community. Angel Food is a big help to a lot of people. As you said, it’s not just for lower-income families -- everyone qualifies to participate. Local Angel Food host sites are listed at http://www.angelfoodministries.com/hosts.asp.
