1. who qualifies??


Who qualifies?

Everyone, there are no applications or qualifications to order Angel Food.

Where does the food come from?

Our food is restaurant grade meats, frozen vegetables, fruits, dairy products, etc. which we acquire through our involvement with only the best producers/vendors of high quality, name brand foods. Never seconds or day old type products are involved.

Can we receive more than one unit or special?

Yes, you can order as many regular units as you would like. To receive a special box you must first order a regular unit.

Where do I order and pick up my food?

We have host sites all over the United States. Click here to locate a local participant.

How does my church become a host site?

You may call in to our offices at 1-888-819-3745 or click here to request more information. Fill out the form and submit it. We will then send you a package in the mail with information you will need to apply.

What if there is not a host site in my area?

2. Thanks. What an interesting idea
Too bad the only place on the north side of Chicago is all the way up in Waukegan.

Bookmarked for future reference.

3. The one I like is SHARE.
We have been involved in SHARE for over twenty years.

When we started, it was run by the Hunger Connection out of Rockford. I don't know why that changed. One of my Democratic committee member friends used to be the SHARE coordinator then.

Now we get our SHARE from Share Wisconsin. They have pickup sites all over Illinois and a couple of other states, too. I am in a very small town in Ogle County, and our community has SHARE.

We started doing this when my husband was unemployed. The cost was $14.00 for a food box then. It is $18.00 now. We get two boxes every month. I like that they encourage people to volunteer, and offer volunteer opportunities in the communities.
