More Food for Less Money

Tired of paying full price for groceries? Sick of opening up the pantry and having no idea what to make for dinner with such slim pickings? We’ve got a program for you!

This fall, Kent District Library presents Creating a Stockpile & Bulk Cooking Tips at several branches. Sarah Jehnzen, from Sarah’s Deals and the WOTV 4 Women crew, will share ideas for creating a stockpile of food while trimming your grocery budget. You will also learn tips for cooking foods in bulk to take advantage of quantity pricing. Sarah feeds her family of four for $40 a week, so you know she is a frugal food expert!
