I believe I have the name right. This is the organization that you buy a box of food, enough for one week, for a family of 4. I have looked at the websites a few times and have often considered it because one of the distribution places in somewhat close to my home. Has anyone ever used this organization? Is it worth it? Is the food of a good quality and fresh? Things are tight everywhere right now and if it is worth it would save alot of money for my family but I don't want to waste my money if the quality is not good. Thanks for your input.

I buy angel food once in a while. You really can't beat the deal! Some of the chickens and meats aren't the best. I do think it is definitely worth the money though. The food does last longer than one week too. I do like when they have to fruits and veggies as an optional package to buy. They usually are really good and fresh.

That is what I wanted to know. The meat and chicken...is it just not the best cuts? Like fatty or grizzly? Thanks for letting me know.

When they give you popcorn chicken, it is really spicey. Some of the little popcorn pieces are all fatty. The beef to me is gross. I always give it to my oldest son because he is on his own and eats anything.

I haven't heard of this organization before. Are there income qualifications? My husband just became seriously ill and my income was just cut by 70%. I could sure use something like this.

I haven't used it but my mom has. From what i hear its real worth it. You get food for good prices. I dont remember what she got though.

You cannot beat the price but if the food isn't good then there is no point. I guess you never heard your mother complain about any of the quality?

Yes, you have the name spelled correctly. I use it almost every month. There are several options to choose from. I usually order enough for the month. So I fill two big boxes. You have to bring your own boxes or laundry baskets work well also. The food is great. It is high quality food. I can use cash, check or food stamps to pay for my purchases. I spend about $30.00 minimum. The most I have ever spent was $68.00. They say the food is for a week for four. It will go a lot further than that. I like the desserts that come with it. Everything is healthy but very tasty.

Thank you for letting me know. I was afraid if I were to order something that the meat would be very fatty or the produce bruised. Thank you for letting me know.
