The Harrisonburg Mercy House is offering a new service that's helping people stretch their dollars.

Mercy House is working with "Angel Food Ministries" to allow people to buy $70 worth of food for less than half the cost. The service is for anyone who wants to save extra money or has a low income.

"People come to use our food pantry and they would get food stamps, or have limited income and it just wasn't enough to get them through the month, so we just became interested in ways that we could stretch their food dollars," says Twila Lee, the Executive Director of the Harrisonburg Mercy House.

People can order the food once a month, and one box feeds a family of four for a week. There is no limit to how many boxes people can order.
