Remains High Locally
Residents til Hoke County have
healthy appetites, it seems. During
the course of a year they dispose of
an impressive amount of food.
Notwithstanding the general
tendency to cut back to adjust to
the rising cost of living, food
consumption in the area continued
at a high level in the past year,
judging from the amount of money
spent in that direction.
During 1974. the figures indi
cate. local residents consumed
some 2N pounds of groceries a week
Although food prices shot up by
about .10 percent throughout the
country since 1972. according to
the Department of Labor, there
was no significant decline in the
period in the amount of eating that
was done. Such adjustments as
were made were in kinds of food
rather than in quantity.
The figures show that whereas
the average household in the
United States, consisting of 2.4
persons, was spending S30.32 tor
food in the latter part of 1972. its
outlav rose to S40.05 last year,
exclusive of alcoholic beverages.
The tacts and figures are based
upon data compiled by the Depart
ment of Agriculture, the Bureau of
Labor Statistics and other agencies,
they show that the average Ameri
can consumed, in the course of the
year. 1K8 pounds of meat. 65
pounds of fish and poultry. 285
eggs. 12.^ pounds of potatoes. 247
pounds ol milk and cream, 85
pounds of processed fruits and
vegetables and 107 pounds of wheat
Hour, among other things.
As to cost. the figures for Hoke
Counts indicate that its food bill
averaged S2.5lH) per household in
ll)74. This includes eating at home
and away from home. Families with
big incomes spent more than this
and those vsith below-average in
comes and those living on farms,
Throughout the nation as a
whole, the average amount spent
was $2,080 per household.
Because of the higher prices,
many families have made drastic
changes in their bflying and cook
ing habits. For one thing, they have
cut dim n on the use of convenience
foods and on dining out.
As for meals at home, they are
less elaborate than they used to be.
