I live in WI and I signed up like a year ago to get an assortment of food ours is called FoodShare WI this is through Catholic Charities. I get like 4-6 lbs of meat each month, 3 lbs of fruit and some other bonus items they cost $25 for us a family of 4. You order once a month and pick up once a month I love this program. They have programs like this all over the country. So with all of the things you get it is so worth the money it cost about $28 all together for shipping and paperwork. It is a wholesale buying club.

See the other thread called "good food cheap - Angel food ministries"  Same type of program with many many sites in every state.  www.angelfoodministries.com.  Many people have added to the thread all of which praise the service.

Also, I volunteer at our local Fare-For-All site and they have wonderful deals on food...you just have to order 1  month in advance. Some wonderful deals...I just recived our easter package which includes 7 cans (corn, fruit, yams), 3lb bag of potatoes, 1 lb bag of onions, a ham plus chicken drummies, and a cheesecake for 10 people...all for 25 dollars!

I swear by www.grocerygame.com. I have saved 50% on our usual bill and have been doing this for over 3 years.
