There has been an interesting trend lately. Major supermarkets are putting together weekly or monthly meals that will feed a family of four for $15 or $10. Some of these meals can be purchased in complete form, while others are simply suggestions that allow you to shop the store yourself for the meal items.
What is nice about most of these meals is that they are very convenient. You simply take the meal home and then reheat it. And from what I have seen, the supermarkets are conscious about delivering well-balanced meals.
Right now, Shaws is offering a meal for four until May 21st that includes BBQ pulled pork, macaroni and cheese and a salad blend. The meal is already bundled together in one place, so you can just grab and go. To learn more visit the Shaw’s 4:15 web page.
Stop and Shop Supermarkets are offering education on preparing inexpensive meals with a series of seminars called Affordable Food Summits.
Is your local supermarket doing anything to address the need for affordable family meals? Please share by leaving a comment.
