Every month I purchase a basic food package from Angel Food Ministries for $30. It is said to feed a family of 4 for a full week. I have found that it feeds my family of 3 for longer then that. Mainly because I do not cook full meals every night of the week.
I also subscribe to my local freecycle.org site to swap needed items with other people.
