Angel Food Ministries calls it quits
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.
