Demographics of Consumer Food Spending, 2017 Edition
For the past three years at the Food Institute, I've been tasked with compiling the data for our annual Demographics of Consumer Food Spending book. Using the most recent data available from the Bureau of Labor statistics, we take an in-depth look at how people are spending their money on food.
