Bethel Harvest offers Angel Food Ministry
Nicholasville’s Bethel Harvest Church is offering Angel Food Ministries, a nonprofit, nondenominational ministry designed to feed individuals and families throughout the United States.
BHC is a partner in this ministry and each month distributes about 100 boxes of restaurant-quality food to families in the area. For almost half the price of shopping at a grocery store, Angel Food’s signature box can help feed a family of four for a week or a single person for a month. Because it is not an income-based program, anyone may participate.
Starting in August 2011, if you refer 10 people (you may be one of the 10) who purchase a box of Angel Food, you will receive a signature box for free. This would be a savings of about $70 if you shopped at a grocery store. Make sure the person you refer puts your name at the top right-hand corner of the order form.
Boxes are ordered and purchased prior to distribution and are usually distributed on the fourth Saturday of the month. Food stamps are accepted.
For more information, contact Kathee Norris at email@example.com or 859-881-3939 ext. 219.
