Stretch your grocery budget at Norwood Nazarene Church!

No, it's not a joke

With the price of food skyrocketing, this incredible, community wide, grocery-savings event on July 26th, hosted by Norwood Church of the Nazarene, is definitely right on time. Deb Robinson, a member of the church, told us the church is one of many teaming up with Angel Food Ministries in a national program that delivers quality food packages to all the host churches at a greatly discounted price. She explained that “the food is not seconds, dented, or day old. There is a cost of $30/per box, which is supposed to feed a family of four for about a week. There are also 3 meat/poultry and 1 veggie/fruit add-on specials ranging in price from $16 to $20 each. It’s a great program to help families stretch their food budgets. There are no income guidelines, so ANYONE can order. Food stamps are also accepted."

Incredibly, you pay only $30 for the following items worth $60 to $75:

40 oz. Marie Callender’s® Family Crock Pot Dinner (Meat Included)
1.5 lb. Boneless Pork Filet
5 lb. Breaded Chicken Chunks
1.5 lb. Meaty Beef Ribs
28 oz. Meatloaf and Gravy
1 lb. Beef Fajitas
1 lb. Fully Cooked Meatballs
1 lb. All Meat Hot Dogs
1 lb. Broccoli
1 lb. Peas and Carrots
28 oz. Pasta Sauce
1 lb. Pasta
32 oz. Borden 2% Reduced Fat Shelf Stable Milk
32 oz. Hawaiian Punch
12 ct. Corn Tortillas
7 oz. Blueberry Muffin Mix
