I'm losing my job by the end of this week and my wife doesn't like the idea of buying all this clean food she won't even eat.
I am serious, if you are losing your job, you might want to start doing the math. That white bread and bologna may be hurting your budget...compare, it's not even close:

Loaf White Bread
$1.59
Calories 1920 (16 slices at 120 calories)
1208 calories per dollar

vs.

White Rice
$1.79
Calories 4800 (30 servings at 160 calories)
2682 calories per dollar

----

Chicken
$5.99 for a 3 lb bag
$2/lb
1 ounce has 46 calories, 1g fat and 9g protein
368 calories per dollar with 72g protein

vs.

Bologna
$4/lb (lunch meat is never cheap)
1 ounce has 76 calories, 6g fat, 2g carbs and 3g protein
304 calories per dollar and 12g protein

------

Chicken and White rice provide more calories, carbs and protein.
