Angel Food provides food packages at varying costs. Patrons must purchase at least one package from one of the four signature menus before purchasing other items, but all food packages cost less than retail value. Packages that cost $30 from Angel Food can cost from $42 to $78 off the shelf. Food packages are designed to provide balanced nutrition and to feed a family of four for a week.
