A 49-count indictment has been filed against the founders of Angel Food Ministries , a former food assistance ministry, claiming they stole nearly $1.5 million dollars from the ministry and with it bought clothes, shoes, jewelry, sporting goods, a classic car and even put a down payment on a jet aircraft.
This is awful news isn't it? Now I get food from a church that includes too much junk food.

I order angel food online using my bank card then pick it up when it comes in. You can even add to your order online at a later date.
They have nutritional values on their website. I need to check that out.
Looks like are both becoming Spark people friends!

We didn't order Angel food this time, but we did get a thanksgiving meal (paid for it late Sept). The portions are actually good for losing weight. A 7lb roasting chicken & 2.5lb ham. No potatoes, just 2 bags of sweet potatoes. I'll definitely lose weight from that, I cannot eat sweet potatoes, lol. Box even has frozen cranberries...yay!

Got my Angelfood! Wow! So glad I ordered. Now we have enough food to get us through next month's financial times. I have to pay small amount on my bills and owe more later. I got a ticket on the freeway for crossing double yellow line out of the carpool lane. It was not my county and they are more strict in the county I was driving in. Anyways I have to mail $498 before October 22 and go to traffic school.
We will not buy any groceries except milk. I'm so thankfull for Angelfood.
I have the flu now and lost weight. Since July I had a bladder infection, then a cold and now the flu (possibly strep infection). I'm taking dayquil and nyquil to take away the coughing, sneezing, stuffy nose, sore throat and body aches. I am starting to feel like I'm on the "get sick, lose weight" diet this year

That's great! This month the Signature box has lots of food I can use so I ordered 2 and 2 grill boxes.
Usually I just want the meat, so I'm so glad I can do that now.

you can now pre-order your thanksgiving package! apparently there was a shortage last year?

ALso they are now allowing you to order the "Special" boxes without ordering a Signature Box! this is great..because i'm beginning to wonder what to do with all the shelf stable milk.. i can only make so much mac-n-cheese. lol!
