Paying it forward with Prairie Land Food

The drought is real and before very long it will affect each of us as we shop for food and other necessities. The buying power of a large group can reduce each one’s expenses and make more food available for less. Prairie Land Food is just such a group and every month provides fresh, healthy food for a minimal cost.

Prairie Land Food is a program that was designed around the idea of giving a helping hand to people in our communities, some refer to it as a “pay it forward” concept. In return they will be offered a nutritious grocery package at a low cost, helping to stretch your food dollar.

The September Pak, at a cost of $25 includes: 1 lb Lean Ground Beef; 1 lb Ham Steak; 20 oz Breaded Chicken Breast Fillets; 2 lbs Chicken Drums; 12 oz Extra Lean Ground Turkey; PLUS a variety of seasonal fresh fruits and veggies.

(Due to market conditions and to maintain quality items are subject to change.)

Vegetarians can order only the Fruit & Veggie Pak for $12; carnivores can order the Meat Only Pak for $14, and Omnivores can order it all! Order a regular Prairie Pak, or Special, Veggies, Meats—some or all, mix it up to suit your needs and your family’s tastes.
