Food Prices On The Rise Again

Here we go again food prices on the rise in Canada.  Forecasted to rise five percent by the end of 2011. So many people are struggling already trying to feed families and this is just going to make things tougher. To eat healthy on a fixed income is realistically impossible. I am still in awe of the cost of a can of coffee and a loaf of bread. Unless you can find a really good deal on bread it is costing on average $.2.00 - $3.00 per loaf. Sure you can go to the dollar store and buy it for a dollar but have you tried the bread there? It’s just disgusting!  Bread went up 1.4 per cent between December of 2009 to December of 2010. Last night in the grocery store I could not believe my eyes from last week to this week four litres of milk increased from 4.17 – 4.47. It does not seem that long ago the cost of a large can of coffee was 9.00 and now the same can is 11.99. They say prices go up then come down. I would like to know where this happens because it sure does not happen here in Canada. Meat prices are ridiculous and have increased 3.8 percent since 2009. Isn’t it bad enough we are paying higher taxes, higher electricity costs, gas prices are off the map, insurance and now we have another gouging for food coming up.

Here are some good sites to go to to get coupons:

  1. Food prices are going up all over the world. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations tracks a worldwide Food Price Index. This index had been going up 7 months in a row and reached its highest price level in Jan 2011. In some countries, a family will spend 50% of their household expense on food.
