Food Bank Helps Combat Costs

8-27-05 – With high prices at the pump, many of us are looking for ways to combat costs, but there’s a non-profit organization – helping people put food on the table, for half the price.

Through the Angel Food Ministries, people can purchase $50 worth of groceries for $25.

On the last Saturday of every month, the Victory Life Food Bank in Durant passes out boxes of food to over 500 people. Volunteers help distribute the food.

The menu varies from month to month, but boxes always include meat, vegetables, eggs and dessert.

The program is open to everyone, but there is a deadline to place an order each month. The next deadline is September 12th.
