RE: How much do you spend on food in USD?
Well, eating out is most of the time more expensive here. The only thing that's around the same price is chow mein.
We spend about USD 1000-1500 a year per person. It will probably become more, cuz while the exchange rate of USD has increased with 20%, the prices haven't increased yet. We don't eat out much, and plant our own veggies

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

RE: How much do you spend on food in USD?
I'd have to put myself on the low end of the scale. A majority of cost for most people is meat -- and the majority of the red meat we eat is venison ---- which I butcher myself.

With a deer license at $20 a deer and getting between 40 and 60 lbs of meat on average -- it helps keep those costs down...

(of course if you figure in the 3-4 grand I spent on my hunting blind - it kinda throws things off.... Smile ) (then again - it's been up for almost 10 years - so you could spread it out over time)

Well, my phone hates me and won't process the vote. But mine would be in the 1,000-1,999 per person range.

I was saying I spend less than $3000 a year on food, while he says he spends between $10,000 and $13,000.

So how about you all? How much do you think your household spends per person on food?

My definition of food in this case: Any food or beverage purchased from a grocery store, restaurant, or other establishment with the intent of human consumption.

My definition of purchase in this case: Use of cash, credit, or government provided funds to obtain food as described above. e.g. If the gov't gives you $500/month to purchase food then that amount counts towards the household food purchase. If somebody else buys you food, try to answer as if you bought that food yourself.

If you only cover the food in your household for a subset of the members then divide how much you spend by that number, instead of the total number.

Anyways, it isn't really complicated, just wanted to make sure everybody has an understanding of what I'm talking about.

An easy way to do this is to take your weekly spending, multiply it by 50 (or 52) and divide that by the number of people. That's how I got my number, as I spend less than $50 a week on groceries. I only eat out maybe 10 times a year, so that isn't a big part of my budget.

Please vote in the poll!

Just my wife and I. We eat all organic, all fresh vegetables, go out for dinner once a week, so it comes to about $1400 USD a month, $17000 a year. it is expensive to eat healthy.

$1400 for each of you or for both of you? If for both you would only be at $8500 per year per person.

Yeah that is for both of us, about $250 a week in groceries, and we go out for a nice dinner which is usually about $100. Of course I spend prob $10-$20 on protein drinks, snacks, water easily per day.....Unsure didnt even throw that in. Shocking

RE: How much do you spend on food in USD?
No idea how much we spend a year on food. Hubby has to eat gluten free which is expensive. Most days we don't cook a dinner but just snack. I've recently started living on fruit smoothies I blend from organic fruit. That's really bumped up the food bill. I have about 4 of those a day and a bowl of soup. We eat out once a month. We cook everything from base ingredients though. It's actually cheaper to live healthily in the UK if you're prepared to cook from base ingredients and don't want to anything fancy. I can live on beans and rice if I have the spices.

I haven't the slightest clue, per person. A rough household estimation would be $7800-8,300 annually.

I buy organic too and I also go out to dinner quite frequently. I hate to cook and I like going out to dinner so I do it quite a bit (like 4 times a week or more). I view it as time to socialize with my friends, but it does get expensive.
