Angel Food Ministries' official site states, they are "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 35 states.
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 $65. 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." AFM distributes the groceries through host sites. Whatcoat UMC of Camden is one of many such sites where orders are taken, and those placing orders will pick up their food on the designated Saturday during the time listed on the order form.
Click on the picture of the order form just below to access the printable order form. You can print it out, fill it in, and mail it to Whatcoat United Methodist Church at 16 North Main St., Camden, DE 19934 along with your check. Please be sure to make the check payable to "Whatcoat UMC". There are other options for dropping your order off. Those dates and times are mentioned on the order form itself. All you need to do after that is come to Whatcoat UMC on the designated pick-up date to get your food.
Please bring a clean, cardboard box (approx. 18"x18") with you. We prepack as much as we can and will give you another box with your food in it and use your box for someone else.
Due to limitation on freezer space here at the church, orders that are not picked up on the day and time mentioned on your order form will be donated to charity after the pick-up time period is finished. If a family emergency should occur on the morning of pick-up, just before pick-up time, please call 302-632-4605 and let us know immediately.
