Yea, those 10# bags of chicken at Walmart were $35.30? last week. Used to be $10.00? I think.
If you have a Whole paycheck nearby or maybe a similar store or even the plant...yes. I used to get a LOT of stuff of that type here from the client choice pantry when my kids were younger. Because the one has food allergies, I always looked for it & usually they would let me have extra at the end because nobody wanted it. I've seen quite a bit of the high end brands there - Annie's, Bob's Red Mill, Krusteaz, Kodiak, etc. Also the ethnic Jewish food too.Well I hope he brings more.
Edit: I got distracted and posted before finishing my thought.
That was my first thought too, we don't frequent food pantries, are they really handing out Red Mill products, especially seeds? Maybe I should go.
Who can afford that? As an alternative here in Tampa...Local farm co-op c-store has their butter at $7.49/lb.

Buy what you can and buy it now because prices are about to reverse course. An associate of mine has an interest in a Waygu cattle ranch. They are having issues getting corn for finishing the cattle because the farmers are not able to get fertilizer to grow the corn.One interesting thing I have noticed recently is the price of high end beef actually coming DOWN in price. Local Albertsons not just one but both of them were running a sale on Wagyu beef. Normally $17.99 a pound on sale for $9.99. Only thing I can think of is folks just arent paying for the top shelf beef so they are having to discount it to move it.. If its scarce in the next month that will confirm it in my mind
Someone who keeps their butter consumption to a modest amount. If you use a quarter pound a week, that's less than $2 on the weekly grocery bill.Who can afford that?
More likely it's the result of many ranchers drastically thinning their herds because of the spiraling cost of hay and grain making it uneconomical to raise and finish the cattle, causing a very temporary glut in the market. When beef less than astronomically priced becomes nonexistent for the next 2 to 3 years, it will confirm that.Only thing I can think of is folks just arent paying for the top shelf beef so they are having to discount it to move it..
