HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - Angel Food ministries is back on track at Christian Services in Hattiesburg. The program is now accepting July food box orders.

What Angel Food Ministries does is provide an economical way for people to order their groceries. A signature food box costs thirty dollars and can feed a family of four for one week.

There are other options people can choose from that include fresh vegetables, fruits and meats. Orders can be placed online, or through Christian Services. Bill Prout, founder of Christian Services, said their partnership with Angel Food is back following prior transportation issues.

Prout explained, "Last Wednesday, we had a team fly in from Good Hope, Georgia. Joe Wingo, who is the CEO of Angel Food, flew in here with part of his team. And we sat down and talked for a couple of hours about how we could settle this issue, and when he left we had resolved it."

There are no qualifications needed for people to order from Angel Food. They can simply pick up their order once a month at Christian Services.
