I'm wondering if there are any food co-ops in San Antonio who have regular groceries. I'm not interested in organics, and I don't want vegetables and fruits exclusively, I just want a cheaper way to buy groceries. Walmart and HEB have a stranglehold on groceries here, and they are both high. I have tried Angelfood, but I don't get to pick exactly what we eat, and still have to shop. My 26th week on unemployment has come and gone, and since most of the jobs I apply for tell me I've already applied, and to come back in 90 days, I really need to save money.

What part of San Antonio do you call home? There may be some options depending on where you live.

Have you talked to anyone at the San Antonio Food Bank? They exist for exactly the reasons you mention and they help people who need a hand during challenging times. For more info call them at (210) 337-3663 or go online at San Antonio Food Bank. Their primary office/HQ is at 5200 Old Highway 90 West, San Antonio, TX 78227-2209 but they work with many distribution partners throughout the city that may be near you.

Thanks guys, I live near 1604 and 281, but I remember my mother going to a freight sales place on Bandera. I don't mind going to Presa as long as I have gas. Thanks again.

Dollar and Ninety-Nine cent stores usually have stellar bargains on food: you might not be able to get everything you need, but you'll certainly be able to get a lot for a very modest sum. The trick to getting the best selection is to get there as soon as the store opens and head straight for the produce/freezer/refrigerator cases.

Good luck!

What about services/programs like these? Not sure if one would consider these cheap enough though...

Local Harvest / Farmers Markets / Family Farms / CSA / Organic Food

http://www.angelfoodministries.com I'm assuming the OP was referring to this for Angel Food?
