It seems like food just keeps getting more expensive and that can be difficult for a family on a tight budget.
A Goodie Box has just about everything you need to feed a family of four for a week.
"We've created affordable boxes that cost $37 or $40 that people can take advantage of every month of the year," said Melissa Bailey, The Goodie Box's outreach coordinator.
The price depends on the items, but generally costs between $20 and $40 -- a huge help for Zada Toohey.
"We get the protein box every month. It has all that meat in it, with all that meat, all we have to concern ourselves with is stocking up on eggs, milk and produce," she said.
Pearl Wigfall adds, "Normally, I make turkey meatloaf.. burger patties, I try to do healthy.. the chicken.. I utilize the whole box."
You can donate non-perishable food items, but also things that can be frozen.
Some families make it last the whole month. A welcome sight when it's tough to find the nourishment affordably.
