There are only two of us, so not much....and if we have leftovers, it goes in his lunch the next day so it wouldnt be an accurate amount since we make it feed us and them him the next day. Our food bill is our lowest bill we have....we eat very frugal.

 I don't figure it out per meal. Some are very inexpensive, like dried beans, cornbread and cabbage, or crabs and fish-that we catch, with rice and corn, so that we can also enjoy more costly meals, like steak, mushrooms, scalloped potatoes and asparagus. I have a monthly budget that includes food for all meals.

average - I'd say $6 for 4 of us...might be a little higher, but not consistently

I would say an average of $7 for 4 of us - some lower, some higher...it really depends on the actual meal and if we have leftovers =0)
