What does $36 less on groceries look like?

John Ketchum Nov 1, 2013

Starting today, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly referred to as food stamps , will see a cut of $5 billion.  Under the cuts, a family four will receive $36 less in benefits every month.

We took the conversation to social media to see what you would cut from your grocery list with $36 less in groceries every month.

The response varied, but because of the price, cutting spending on fresh fruit came up multiple times: A lot of respondents said the price of produce is one of the most expensive things on their grocery list.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
