When there’s not enough money at the end of the month to pay for groceries, Rosemarie Mastroianni-Lopez said, difficult choices need to be made.
“I’ve had to come up with some pretty creative dinners; I don’t know how I came out of the pantry with them,” she said. “If I haven’t been able to go shopping in a month and a half and I have to pay the light bill, I have to prioritize. Food is the first thing to go, because that’s the easiest.”
