Angel Food Ministries - National Food Resource Network
Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization dedicated to providing food relief and contributing to benevolent outreaches in communities throughout the United States. One box of food costs $30 and provides balanced nutrition and variety with enough food to feed a family of four for a week.People do not need to demonstrate financial need. Local churches host pick up sites. You can find a local pick up site and preview the upcoming menu at their website.

It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer. Membership is free.

Simple Living America
Simple Living America is the first national, nonprofit membership organization for the general public centered on simplicity. What is simple living? It means many things to many people, but we are broadly defining it in lay terms as The Satisfaction of Enough. By providing mainstream America with a means to The Satisfaction of Enough through its unique Get Satisfied book, campaign and website, Simple Living America is helping to launch a satisfaction movement in this country. SLA calls for balance in a complex world.
