Media Coverage: Melissa Walsh Featured on VeryWell Family

Melissa recently got to talk about the real-life effects of food inflation with reporter LaKeisha Fleming. Writing for VeryWell Family, an influential family and lifestyle site, Fleming notes, "My household has felt the pinch of higher food costs at the grocery store. I’m sure yours has, too."


Melissa noted, "Consumers are spending about 20% more on food now than they were before the pandemic,”....“With food and energy prices both going up, families are noticing that their paychecks are stretched by trips to the grocery store and the pump.”


Additionally, “Food prices have increased in the United States. In October, they were up 5.3% compared to last year. Meat items have been especially impacted, with beef up 20.1% and pork up 14.1% over the last 12 months. Collectively, meat, poultry, eggs, and fish are up 11.9% over last year,”
