Some cheaper groceries are on the way for some Eastern Kentuckians.
The New Hope Church in Hazard is working with Angel Food Ministries to sell boxes of food at discounted rates. A local pastor says they have sold more than 600 boxes of food at $25 a box which is more than eleven thousand food items.
"Its a need, by the 3rd and 4th week of the month, a lot of people is out of food, so to get three times as much food as you can buy in most grocery stores, it's a great ministry," said Pastor Michael Barnett with New Hope Church.
Pastor Barnett says the church does not get any profits from the sales, they only enjoy helping anyone who would like to purchase the discounted food.
The boxes sold for March will be picked up Saturday.
If you would like to purchase a box next month, you can contact the church by April 14th at the information below:
