Rising grocery costs eating up consumers' budgets

Email News Alerts

Nicole Martens of West Fargo has not been able to stay within her grocery budget for the past couple of months.

She runs a child care business, has a family of five and has been forced to adjust her budget to account for rising food costs.


"It's either that or cut back on healthy foods and I'm not willing to jeopardize my family's quality of food intake at this point," Martens said. "But if they keep rising as they have been, I will have no choice."
