Food Spending

The USDA calculates average food costs at four different consumption levels: thrifty, low-cost, moderate-cost, and liberal. They assume that all meals and snacks are eaten at home, which lowers the cost. In June 2010, the thrifty plan for a family of 4 per week was $134.50. Low-cost = $175.10 Moderate cost = $219.10 Liberal cost = $265.90.

Personal Experiences:

I'm a 28-year old male semi-professional cyclist. I live alone. For me, enough food in Finland can be bought by 250 euros (c. 386 $). I've tried to buy the cheapest, healthiest foodstuffs and to use the discount university restaurant and even to force a smaller budget, but enough is worth 250 €.

Food is about 25 % cheaper in USA, and most of the people in the world don't have enough food or money for food. In mud hut villages, in average, people use only 30 $/month for food.

The average American family of four spends amount $100-200 a week on groceries. Though my family has personally spent up to $600 an week on groceries when splurging, on heavy meals, large amount of meat, sodas and snacks. But for my family of four we spend about $250 a week, give or take.
