$49 Emergency Food Menu for 5

This menu does not require alot of preparation. This menu is designed for the working family who is struggling. This menu assumes that your kitchen is bare and have no supplies on hand.
For those of you who use coupons, you could probably cut $5-$10off, bringing the cost down to $40. For those of you who are shopping for this menu, the key to saving will be shopping at food marts,bread outlets,bargain factories and local grocery store sale ads. I am also making a bare neccesities menu with less choices that will cost less.

If you are wanting to help a family in need this is a great resource for providing a weeks worth of food. Just Print the menu,Place it in a card and deliver the groceries. God Blesses you and God Bless those who Bless others.
