Who doesn’t love cheap eats?
Let us rephrase this. Who doesn’t love a cheap meal that tastes amazing?
As inflation creeps up, finding cheap eats is getting more and more difficult.
According to a recent report by the Associated Press, the Federal Reserve is expected to announce one of the largest interest hikes since 1994.
This is a bigger increase than previously projected, according to the AP, and is a signal that “the central bank is struggling to restrain stubbornly high inflation.”
Along with this, the cost of food has shot up, which means that everything in the supply chain will feel the affects from it. And trust us, our regular orders at our go-to places have increased in price! Consumers have also changed their shopping habits, especially at the grocery store, due to rising inflation, according to CNBC.
Plus, people are getting more concerned about food prices. In a survey conducted by The Harris Poll and Alpha Foods, 90% of Americans are concerned about food prices.
Prices of the foundations in the food pyramid such as meat, oils, grains and wheat have increased. And this is due to many factors such as the rising cost of fertilizer and energy, according to CNBC. There also have been food-export bans and disruptions from nations that supply wheat, oats, sugar, and palm oil, which are in most — if not all — foods.
With all of this being said, it’s harder than ever to find a cheap meal that satisfies our hunger.
