St. Albans Church is excited to announce the beginning of our new outreach ministry, the Smart Choice Food Program. This program is similar to the former Angel Food Program that we participated in. The Smart Choice program provides a basket of food, a Smart Box that can be ordered monthly and picked up at St. Albans on delivery day. The Smart Box contains between $55 and $80 of food for a cost of $36. The May smart box, consist of 19.5 pounds of food, including items such as chicken (breasts, thighs and tenders), whiting filets, meatloaf, ground turkey, beef burgers, seasoned fries, vegetables, rice and mac and cheese. Additional value box options are available for an additional cost.

There are no income restrictions for participation in this program or limits on the number of boxes that may be ordered.

St. Albans is currently accepting orders during office hours Monday through Thursday between 9 AM and 3 PM. If you cannot come to St. Albans during normal office hours, please call 563-386-4087 to make arrangements for placing an order. St. Albans is currently accepting payment in cash. St. Albans is not currently authorized to accept EBT cards; however we expect to be approved in the near future to accept EBT orders. Additional value box options are available for an additional cost. Alternate order placement may be done on line at: www.smartchoicefoods and scheduled for pick-up at St. Albans or through New Life Church in Moline.
