Q. How much do you spend on food?
A. Fortunately we are able to grow most of our produce needs (fruts, vegetables, herbs) however, we still need to buy staples (flour, rice, dried beans, and some dairy, etc) and chickens and ducks supply us with eggs.
In the summer we are able to grow about 90% of our families food needs.
Food budget stats:
4 persons in the PTF family (+ 1 volunteer) $100-$150 a week (winter) & $60-$80 (summer)
