How to Start an Angel Food Ministries Locally. Angel Food Ministries is a nonprofit organization that provides packages of food monthly to those low income individuals that need them. For a discounted price, families purchase these boxes of food which contain fruits, vegetables, meats and staples. If your area does not have a host site for Angel Food Ministries, your location can become one.
Determine if there is a need for Angel Food Ministries in your area. Visit the website of the company and find out if there are programs already established in your area. Since the organization is nondenominational and anyone from any religion or background can use it, one host site per area is usually all that's needed, but some restrictions apply.
Locate a place within your area that would be able to house the Angel Food Ministries. A large location isn't always necessary, but refrigeration may be, depending on if pick up will be scheduled at the same time as delivery. In addition to refrigeration units, you'll also need a location where people will be available to help organize shipments and to collect payments at the time of drop off.
Contact Angel Food Ministries once you know you can provide what they are looking for. The organization works directly with charities, churches and other organizations to establish the local host sites, usually without any problem. They will want someone or several people to be responsible for managing shipments and collecting funds, so have this information available.
Let people know that your organization will be hosting the distribution of products from Angel Food Ministries. Direct interested parties to the website of the organization to place their order for food, and to find out what is included in each monthly shipment. Shipments will have a different assortment of foods each month.
Manage the delivery of the food to the location and to those who have purchased the food. Collect funds as directed by the organization. Continue to let those who would need discounted food that the organization is available to help them.
