$400.00 a month is about what my family of four spends a month on our food costs here in the mid west. Give or give $50.00 to $100.00 more, just depends on how much milk, bread, soda we go through. so that's about right.

Dang, after reading the other responses, I think I must be living in a different country.
In my own opinion, $400 is a lot to spend per month per person.
My normal cost per month for food usually runs under $100 If you want to be an idiot and go out to a restaurant to eat every day, you can push it up to $400 But actually buying food and cooking it myself, is usually under a $1 a meal on average.
In general, other families around here seem to have the same cooking and eating habits as me. I have went on shopping runs with other people and I was not too surprised by their buying habits. But then again, we have grown up together, and our habits have kind of normalized with everyone else’s in the valley.
