Local church offers way to save on groceries

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Between the tough economy and holiday spending, people keep looking to save some money, and one local church thinks they have the answer. Hope Lutheran Church says they can save you money on groceries through a program called Angel Food Ministries. The non-profit organization, based out of Georgia, started in 1994 and provides food to 500,000 families across the nation.

Hope Lutheran distributes food for the group who says a box costing about $30 will feed a family of 4 for about a week.

"It's just tons of food. A lot of meat, which is your high ticket item, and then we always have vegetables. There's always a dozen eggs and milk. There's always a desert, and it's just a really good deal." said Kay Arellano.

You can view the menu and order food from Hope Lutheran's website.
