Angel Food Ministries Continues to Serve and Hits March Peak

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Angel Food Ministries (, an organization dedicated to providing affordable, high quality food to those in need, achieved its highest ever March distribution with 560,000 boxes distributed, and only second highest distribution numbers in its history, indicating further the growing need for affordable, quality food.

Angel Food Ministries provides boxes of food to more than 5000 communities in 39 states and feeds more than 320,000 families each year. Through Angel Food's benevolence funds, the organization has donated $560 thousand back into local communities and churches this month alone and more than $20 million since its inception.

Pastor Joe Wingo, CEO and founder, said, "Our March numbers humble us, as we see there is a great need being filled, yet we need to do more. We fear that those who are going hungry are multiplying with each day and down turn in the national employment figures.”

Pastor Wingo continued, "Angel Food Ministries has been under somewhat of a siege in the public eye for a few months, and we feel it every day. It is our greatest privilege to be able to continue filling a national need and helping families through the rough times. We appreciate the support and confidence that this distribution demonstrates; we feel for those who seek food relief through us, and praise God for giving us the abilities to minister to so many through this national epidemic."

I volunteer to distribute Angel Food in my community and I can tell you that Angel Food is a big help to a lot of people. For $30 you get a box of food worth about $60. The box includes chicken or beef, milk, eggs, vegetables, and several other items, and the menu varies each month. It’s really a great system. You can find an Angel Food host site in your area at
