Angel Food Ministries Shuts Down (Updated)
Update: More details on AFM's closure can be found here.
Angel Food Ministries, which provided boxes of discounted food to hundreds of thousands of struggling families via churches in 35 states, has announced it is shutting down for good. Earlier this month, the family-run, multi-million-dollar ministry had announced a temporary suspension of service amid significant staff layoffs.
