  • One Harvest Ministries is not your typical food ministry. It was founded with the idea of meeting the needs of anyone who wants access to high quality, nutritional food at savings up to 50 percent off.
    Anyone can use this blessing: single moms, senior citizens, young married couples or anyone on a budget.
    Prices are similar to Angel Food Ministries. For $35, a box of groceries will feed a family of four for a week. A family box includes meats, vegetables, soups and a dessert, but boxes also can be set up to include meats only or vegetables only.
