A mix of inflation, supply-chain disruptions and an increased demand have caused food prices to steadily rise since the beginning of the pandemic. While inflation has come down from last summer’s high, some Americans continue to feel the effects of price hikes at the grocery store. The average American household spends more than $1,000 per month on groceries, according to Census Bureau’s Household pulse survey. But that number varies depending on where you live and how many family members you’re feeding.
The average family spends about $270 at the grocery store per week, but that number increases when children are taken into account. Families with kids spend an average of $331 a week on groceries or 41% more than families without kids.
