Incredibly tight monthly budget- suggestions to fit it please.

I care for disabled family, so a lot of my money goes there.

But I have a $40 a month food budget. For two people. I wish it was higher than that, but for now it’s not.

The food bank gave us some stuff; canned beans, some soup, spaghetti, things like that. But it’s only enough for about two weeks and we can’t go back for a month.

Anyone have some filling or at least tasty things we can make on the super cheap?


Edit:
This budget is with EBT. Apparently combined we make too much for any real help, but not enough to pay rent and such without struggling. I did check out the loacl farmers market this morning, and found they had an EBT matching …thing.. so I managed to change $15 into $30 and got some peppers, mangos, pears, tomatoes,and potatoes + 12 eggs. Going to try and grow some peppers.

We live in Florida, close to Sarasota without giving away exact location. A few of you have asked about an Amazon wishlist. I didn’t have one specifically for food until a few hours ago. Added some basics based on your suggestions

Serriously appreciate all the information, and whoever gave the award thank you.

As per disabled family:
We don’t have full disability yet. The lawyers are handling that and hopefully that will be approved soon which will help tremendously. But while we wait, they can’t work. I do work two jobs. One in the evening delieverying food; they come with me. The other during the day is sewing stuffed animals, masks, and other collectable items. I am also studying to become a real estate agent, just trying to save the money up to pay for the final exam.
