managing your food money
Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program.

An envelope is used to keep family money set aside for food. In the activity, small groups use this "envelope method" to keep track of cash and Food Stamps (paper or electronic) allotted for food. "Shopping cards" give various situations in which the groups must decide when the food money/Food Stamps should be used to purchase food and non-food items. Discussion questions are also included.
