"RENEWING THE AMERICAN DREAM"
More than 131 tons of food was delivered across South Carolina on May 17th of this year as local churches banded together with Angel Food Ministries to help hard hit families deal with the impact of rising food costs. With a box of food full of quality meat and other essentials, these local churches are helping seniors on fixed incomes, single parents and hard-working people who struggle just to keep their families fed.
According to a 2006 study by the Economic Research Service, 14.7 percent of South Carolinians are in need of food assistance. With the 4.2 % increase in rising food cost hitting these and others, this local distribution will help families with enough food for about a week and senior citizens for about a month.
Local churches and non-profits join with Angel Food Ministries in distribution of top quality food that has been purchased in very large quantities from the nation's top suppliers.
Churches are asked to please prayerfully consider specifying Source Transport to handle your freight handling needs. Source Transport is a division of Logisource, and can be contacted by calling 1-800-864-8133
