Tips for Affording Food
Take Advantage of Local Food Banks & Soup Kitchens
Food banks and soup kitchens are set up in almost every city across the US, and most of them are run by volunteers who understand what it’s like to struggle financially—and want to help make sure no one goes hungry during tough times. Many food banks offer pantry staples as well as fresh produce and meats that can help stretch your grocery budget further and ensure that you get all the nutrients you need each day without breaking the bank.
Take Advantage Of Coupons And Cash Back Apps
Coupons and cash back apps are another great way to save money on groceries without having to sacrifice quality or quantity. There are dozens of apps out there that offer coupons and cash back when shopping at certain stores or buying certain items. Make sure you check each app before heading to the store and compare prices between them too—some may be offering better deals than others! Additionally, if you sign up for loyalty programs at your favorite grocery stores, they may offer exclusive coupons just for members that can really add up over time!
