MIDLAND-Soaring food prices don't have to blow your budget this summer, a national nonprofit operating with 10 host sites locally can help. They're offering boxes of food for just $30 dollars.

"All of our budgets are getting tighter," Janet Taylor, a volunteer for Angel Food Ministries for the Christian Church of Midland, said. Taylor helped bring the program to the Basin last year and says she expects more growth this summer.

"I already think we're seeing more interest in Angel Foods after seeing gas prices rise, and food prices rise," she said.

"You're getting so many things in that basic unit, that it really pays for itself," Kathleen Wilkins, who says she ordered for her family, said.

Despite rising diesel costs, the organization is doing everything they can not to raise rates.

"They are planning to make good use of their trucks, and wise use of their money, and plan their routes to make the best use of their fuel," Taylor said.

According to Taylor, you do not have to qualify, and you can place as many orders as you like. The organizaiton takes cash, check, lone star cards, and food stamps.
