It has been brought to my attention by my good friend Kate that Angel Food Ministries has a host site right here on the Outer Banks! Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit food cooperative. They provide high quality food boxes that will allow you to make the most of your dollar.
The best thing that is offered is an allergen-free (no gluten, peanuts, soy, milk,eggs, fish, crustaceans, peanuts or tree-nuts) box. May's box ($25.00), provides 1 pound of chicken breast nuggets, 1 pound of breaded chicken tenderloin, 1 pound of breaded breast fillet patties, 1 pound breaded boneless chicken wings and 1 pound breaded cubed steak. Remember this is all GLUTEN-FREE!!! If you have gluten-free children they will be ecstatic to enjoy foods that are usually forbidden.
Other boxes offered include a fresh fruit and vegetable box (approximately 1/2 bushel) for $24.00 or a box of 8 NY strip steaks (each 10 oz) for $26.00. There are other boxes for you to consider as well. Beware that not all the boxes are gluten-free.
For more information go to www.angelfoodministries.com or call 252-441-5897. The address for pick-up is Outer Banks Presbyterian Church at 907 S. Croatan Hwy/MP8.5 Kill Devil Hills, NC 27928. Pick-up time is usually 1 Saturday a month between 8:30-9:30am.
