What We’re Buying for the Food Bank This Week at Publix with Coupon Match ups (August 29 – September 4)

 It took us four months and 163 trips to a grocery store, but the initial $2,000 is finally gone!  The good people at 12Stone church had no idea what would develop from their generous grant to the North Gwinnett Co-op.  That $2,000 has now been parlayed into $11,101 worth of food for the needy, or 5.55 times their investment, and hopefully an even more powerful return in terms of inspiring others to the call to help their local food banks!

As we close this chapter, we are proud to announce that we are committed to ongoing support of the Co-op.  This column will be a regular feature, and we will continue to do our thing to help stock the food pantry!

There’s a pretty good deal at Publix for the next couple of weeks on that most coveted of food bank items, peanut butter, with Planters brand marked down to $2.00 per 16oz jar.  In two different stores we have found $1.00 off 2 peelies coupons, bringing the net down to $1.50.  But it is otherwise a lean week at Publix for great deals.  Here’s hoping for another Mega Event at Kroger!

 At Publix through 9/13/13

Kraft Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles ready-to-eat meals, 9oz microwaveable tray — $2.99
-        MC $1.00 off 1 Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles, printable, plus
-        SC B1G1 Velveeta Cheesy Skillets Singles, Publix Grilling flyer (available in rack at front of stores)
Only forty-nine cents each for these ready-to-eat meals buys a nice warm lunch or dinner for one.

Hormel Sandwich Makers, or SPAM Meals for 1, 7.5oz to 10oz microwaveable tray – 3 for $5.00
-        MC $1.00 off 1 SPAM Meal for 1, SS 8/11/13, or

These hot meals for one are only $0.67 after coupon.  Look for them in the Soup aisle.

Planters Peanut Butter, 16oz jar — $2.00
-       MC $1.00 off 2 Planters Peanut Butter, peelies found on product
Peanut Butter is the #1 request of our food bank!  This is a fantastic price for peanut butter, $1.50 versus the regular price of $3.79.  

Luck’s Canned Beans, assorted sizes and varieties — $0.75
Coupons are rare for Luck’s, but this is a great price, and Food Banks really need canned or dried beans!

 Please remember that the $5 Off $40 Publix coupon from last Thursday’s AJC expires Friday, 8/30/13!
