FARM & HOME NEWS.
By Joy W. Frizeil, Associate Home Agent Wise management of the food dollar is a challenge to the homemaker of today. Many changes have affected the food field during the past years. People are moving from rural areas to the city - thus fewer people have home grown foods. The influence of a more casual type of living has resulted in more informa lity in types of food served and in meal service. Families are larger today, which means more food is purchas ed. Many married women wx>rk outside the home, and, as a result, buy foods easily and quickly prepared. Many full time homemakers, parti cipating in outside activities and community affairs, are looking for short cuts in food preparation. But no matter what your situation may be, you still have to feed the family. Plan your meals in advance end you will know what foods you need to have on hand for each meal. Plan meals for as many days ahead as is con \enient or for the number of days between shopping trips.
