Wondering what the best deals are to buy for your local food bank? Here are the Publix sale items and coupon match-ups for the items we are buying for the North Gwinnett Co-op this week 8/22/13-8/28/13

Last week we found 11 cans of beans on a clearance table at a Publix in Duluth, GA.  Beans are a coveted Food Bank staple, but they are difficult to find at savings greater than 30%.  These half-off clearance beans lowered our weekly savings rate to 78%, but we will sacrifice savings statistics for feeding families any day!  In addition to the beans, we picked up 70 ready-to-eat Velveeta meals, 8 jars of Skippy peanut butter, 16 boxes of Cheerios cereal, and 44 cans of Chef Boyardee pasta.  Our total spend was only $75.68.
 
This next week is complicated because the Publix purple “Back To School” or Grocery Savings Flyer changes Friday night.  The regular Publix weekly sale isn’t the best for food bank purposes, with the best deals occurring in frozen foods and condiments, but many of us will find a $5 off $40 coupon in today’s AJC!

Campbell’s Chunky Soup, 18.6oz to 19oz can or 15.25oz bowl – $1.50
-       MC $0.50 off 2 Campbell’s Chunky Soup or Chili, printable
Soup deals are rare outside of the big winter season, which means the soup supplies at the food bank are also low! A new price of $1 per can versus the regular $2.15 is respectable savings for this time of year.
