I also learned on pinterest.com about growing your own green onions. So, I bought the organic green onions, and took a couple out and put in a glass of water.
Now, if all goes well, they will grow indefinitely and I can just snip off what I need. Also, they grow pretty fast! So, now, I shouldn't need to buy green onions again! That's saying a lot because I have a really hard time keeping a live plant alive EVER!
There isn't a Cosco near us, or a Sam's Club...they are in a town a couple hours away.
Also, I have a bread machine, and although I am still learning how to use it, I am using it to make bread.
We don't have TV, but we do get Netflix streaming...and I did see the Dive show on there, but haven't checked it out yet. I don't know if the coupon show is on there or not. I'm sure I could find a link online though...that's pretty easy.
I do know what Walmart does with the "throw away" food, since my husband works there. It is actually all donated to the homeless shelter in town. I don't know about the other grocery stores, though.
I will check out the website on being vegan for $4 a day!
Thanks for all the tips! If you have any more thoughts, please share!
Maybe they can be of some assistance. I don't know about these groups in particular, but most food banks "rescue" food from grocery chains, restaurants, etc... and it is mostly produce that may be less than perfect, or a little over ripe, but still edible. Lots better than the pre-fabbed stuff that winds up in WIC allotments.
