Food prices are higher everywhere. Baldwin Publishing’s COVID nutrition content shows you how to eat healthy on a budget.

The COVID-19 pandemic is creating hardships for families across the nation, including wreaking havoc on Americans’ bank accounts and dinner tables. Thousands of people are out of work. Others are losing income because of illness or caring for a loved one.

And food prices are higher in 2020, hitting consumer pocketbooks across the nation. Grocery prices have skyrocketed as more people are cooking and eating at home. Supply chain issues and plant closings due to COVID-19 outbreaks are partly to blame. According to CNN, meat and poultry prices rose nearly 11%, egg prices increased 10% and the cost of cereal and fresh vegetables went up about 4% from February to June of this year.

As Americans struggle financially, many are finding it more difficult to afford nutritious food. A national survey by Consumer Reports found that nearly one in five people say they have accepted charitable food donations since the start of the pandemic. Some families are doing the best they can at the supermarket, but are limiting or skipping healthy foods that would typically make it into their shopping cart.
