Eating real food on a food stamp budget. Can it be done? We say yes! Current USDA food stamps budget for a family of 4 is $640. That averages out to 7.61 meal. We planned a month worth of meals with recipes for a family of four and kept it with in the food stamp budget. We even worked out an organic option for just over.
Conventional $504 ( avg $6 per meal for a family of 4)
Organic $588 (avg $7 per meal for a family of 4)
*prices biased on shopping at Kroger stores.
Do you have a smaller family? Before serving divide the meal in half and freeze for later or put in the fridge and use for lunches.
