In the first installment of our new series on feeding households, meet Sarah Smith, kindergarten teacher and busy mom of two who “reads the flyers like a magazine subscription.”
When I sent out a general message to a number of friends, asking how they feed their hungry families on a budget, I wasn’t expecting to get such a flood of detailed responses. I quickly realized I’d touched a nerve – in a good way. Parents work so hard to feed their children and themselves, to put healthy meals on the table, to avoid spending a fortune at the grocery store, and to fit it all around busy work and school schedules.
It’s a feat worthy of more praise than we give it, which is why we at TreeHugger have decided that a new series profiling different households’ grocery shopping, meal-planning, and food-prepping strategies would be both interesting and helpful to our readers. Introducing our first featured family… the Smiths!
