Where’s the Beef?

What’s it take to feed an average family of four?

About $140 a week if you’re thrifty, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. If you spend more liberally at the grocery store, the cost rises to $225-$275 a week.

For the average 19-50 year old, a frugal grocery budget totals $35-50 per week. Want more comparisons? Check out the USDA report http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2010/tables/10s0716.pdfhere
