Coupons are EVERYWHERE!! They are in the paper, mail-outs, online AND you pass by them in stores. Coupons have been around since 1887 typically to market products and can be redeemed for financial discounts with the opportunity to save a lot of money. My concept of viewing coupons as money in order to reduce food insecurity looks like the following: ONE grocery handbasket filled with food, baby, health and beauty and pet coupons collected since September 2017 Art Prize /wrapped in $100 bundles ONE cart of FREE items accquired from May 2018 - ArtPrize 2018 The coupon basket represents money potentially saved through one year of couponing. At the end of Art Prize the grocery cart of FREE items will be donated. Grand Rapids has a child poverty rate of 32.7% and this stat proves we need a new way of looking at feeding our families. Together let's impact our neighborhoods, families and communities. You will be amazed the amount of money saved!! + Every week there is something FREE!
