Angel Food Ministries is a nonprofit organization which supplies food items to the poor and needy of about 500,000 families is now shut down for good.

AFM was founded in 1994 by Pastors Joe and Linda Wingo in Georgia, to provide good hearty meals for families at discounted prices.  It was announced earlier this month that the company would not be able to distribute its discounted food for the month of September and now it plans to shut down for good.

Locally AFM provided discount groceries to Triangle families for more than 17 years and many churches that used the service for the community say its closing was devastating.
