Angel Food Ministries calls it quits

By: 27 September 2011 4 Comments

It’s official — after 17 years of providing monthly food services to around 500,000 families in 43 states, Angel Food Ministries has shut its doors.

One of the areas that has benefited from the Monroe, Ga.-based nonprofit organization is central Arkansas. Angel Food, which operates through participating churches, is a nondenominational, Christian organization that was established to purchase food in bulk and distribute it at discounted prices to families in need. The organization canceled its scheduled food deliveries for September and announced on its site last week that it was unable to continue operating.

“At this time we regret to inform you that we have not found a solution that will allow Angel Food Ministries to continue to distribute food on a monthly basis and have decided to cease operations,” the organization states on its Internet site. “We realize the pressure that this places on our host sites, community food banks and customers.

“However, there is a group of former employees and food vendors that are working to find a better way of serving those who have come to depend on Angel Food.”

According to the statement, economic pressures are to blame for the loss of the charity.

    Obrazy znajdujace sie na tej samej stronie i bardzo sie r?zniace rozmiarami po prostu wolaja do czytelnik?w „brak profesjonalizmu!”. Zaleta takich przerywnik?w jest wlasnie to, ze sa przerywnikami – pozwalaja na moment odetchnac od zasadniczych tresci, kt?re potrafia byc czasem trudne do zrozumienia, monotonne albo denerwujace. Czytelnik tez czasem zasluguje na moment wytchnienia. Kiedy kogos czytelnikom przedstawiasz dajesz czytelnikom jakis wizualny punkt odniesienia. Twoje wlasne komentarze, zaznaczenie najistotniejszych fragment?w, uczynia zawartosc Twego blogu jeszcze bardziej oryginalna i wlasna.

    Podloga zmieciona i odkurzona. Innymi slowy musisz zadbac, by ludzie czuli sie u Ciebie zrelaksowani i przepojeni podziwem, nie zas rozproszeni przez balagan. Szablony te pozwola wybrac zestaw czcionek i kolor?w, zdecydowac, czy chcesz jeden panel boczny (gutter) czy kilka, a takze umiescic na stronie wlasne obrazki. W sumie dostarcza wzglednie standardowego szkieletu, na kt?rym Ty umiescisz unikalne, niepowtarzalne „mieso” tresci. Niekt?re pakiety sa dziecinnie proste w obsludze, ale nie pozwalaja na importowanie wlasnych element?w graficznych, inne wymagaja pewnej znajomosci HTML.
