In MN we have a program called Fare for all - not sure if other states have it? Anyway, there are no income restrictions and you can go buy packages of food which end up being 40% less than the amount you would spend at the grocery store. During the holidays they have a package which will include all the fixings for a holiday meal. They have vegetarian package, meat packages and a regular package. The regular package consist of 3-4 meat items (turkey, beef, chicken or fish) with potatoes, onions, carrots, 2 different vegetables as well as 2 different fruits - $20.
Anyway, the program purchases these items in bulk from the distribution centers. My question is has anyone ever participated in a program like Fare for all? Do you have a fare for all in your state? I am going today to go get a regular package as well as a mega meat package - all for $45. The mega meat package has 7-8 different kinds of meats! I'm excited!
