Editorial: End of a ministry

The end of Angel Food Ministries offers further evidence of todayís hard times. The faith-based Georgia group said the number of families who could afford to buy food through its network dwindled down too far. Local churches who helped distribute the food say other problems had developed, too. One church separated itself from Angel Food Ministries a couple of years ago.
At any rate, an organization that helped families save money on food is now defunct. The clients were not seeking emergency food assistance or a handout; instead, they were economizing and standing on their own two feet.
Local volunteers for Angel Food Ministries deserve thanks for taking part in this outreach program. Gandhi said the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. These volunteers did that and more. As many have already said, they will find other ways to serve. Letís hope the people they helped can find other ways to save.
