Food Assistance and Grocery Money Saving Programs
Did you know that according the USDA, an American family of four living on a "thrifty food plan" spends $146.00 a week? That's $584 dollars a month, over $7000 a year, and that's the lowest cost food plan!
Most American families actually spend considerably more than that on food and how can they not, we are barraged with commercials that make our mouths wet and stomachs growl. Adding to this dilemma, healthy and nutritious food tends to be more expensive than "junk food". No wonder our country is rampant with diabetes and other food nutrition related issues.
The good news is there is help and assistance available for wherever you and your family fit in to the food mix. Check out the links below to learn more about any area that might be of interest.
