While it appears that the OP's purpose for joining was to post that...

Thank you, that's a nice service and it's for anyone in that area, and it's not given away. The price is nominal and it's good food.

[total side note: That female reporter is an ugly big woman, so it's interesting to see that in Cali, unlike some other areas, they might give more than faces a chance to work on TV.]

dude, price wise in that area, it's a good deal...the veggies and half the meat alone in my area would be more than the price.

Thank you for that, those have several locations. I was able to find some in my area, so I can pass this on to others. Our food prices here are HIGH and this will help some of our workers who not only don't get paid much, but face a furlough.

This is an example of several options:




Actually, that looks pretty good...better than what I'm eating this morning.

I have used Angel food in the past. Before buying from them I see what is going to be in the box and compare it to the grocery store circular. Some months it is cheaper to buy the same things at the store. Hillbilly Housewife used to do a menu plan for using the Angel food boxes, to help stretch the budget (I'll have to check and see if they still do).

I found this on the site:

Angel Food Menus | Hillbilly Housewife

I can't tell if they are actively still posting menus, but there are lots of recipes, shopping lists on there that you could probably put one together from the old ones. Hope that helps.
