Meal deals and savings in Colorado Springs for Easter Sunday grocery shopping

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- With the Easter Sunday holiday on everyone's minds, some may be doing their last minute grocery shopping Saturday.

With inflation at the top of families concerns, budgets are tight right now. But families still want to provide the best Easter Sunday feast they can for their loved ones.

Some local grocery stores have reduced prices on several meal ideas to make your Easter breakfast and dinner delicious and affordable.

"We know family budgets are really tight right now so we wanna help our customers by lowering the price of breakfast items and dinner items for the Easter holiday," Safeway Senior Director of Public Affairs Kris Staaf said.

If you're a Safeway or Albertsons shopper, to feed a family of 6 they put together a dinner idea that costs under $50. It includes an 8 lb. spiral ham, potatoes, vegetables, a dinner roll, butter and dessert.

Another grocer in the area, Natural Grocers, put together a pasta meal deal to feed a family of 4 for $12, a burger meal for 4 for $13, and a chicken meal deal for 4 for $14. This way, families have a variety of options depending on everyone's preference.

However, Easter Sunday is one of the biggest brunch holidays of the year, and grocers know that.

"Brunch is big for the Easter holiday, and we know families like to get together, enjoy food, have great conversation, and brunch plays into all of that," Staaf said.

At Safeway, key breakfast foods have been reduced in price. Such as bacon, pastries, fresh berries, pancake mix and orange juice.

"In any Safeway or Albertsons throughout Colorado you're gonna see these same deals and they go through Tuesday," Staaf said.

Natural Grocers also has a french toast brunch deal for the month of April to feed a family of 4 for $17.

The best ways to take advantage of deals and reduced prices is to check around your favorite grocery store for sale stickers and tags, as well as ads. Also, check the grocery store's website or app for coupons or ask an employee there to point you in the right direction.

"The other way people can save is shopping our own brands, the Safeway owned brands," Staaf said. "Lucerne, O Organics, and Safeway Signature."

Also, keep in mind a lot of stores are closed or have reduced hours Sunday, so it's best to finish all grocery shopping Saturday.

However, food insecurity is still relevant during the holiday season, and Safeway partners with Care and Share to donate food year round to pass out to families in need.

"Really neat for those grocery stores to partner with us to make sure food they're taking off their shelves comes to the food bank and we can supply that food to all our partner agencies so they can help people," Care and Share President and CEO Nate Springer said.

Food banks across Southern Colorado have seen an increase in need. Care and Share has a 'Find Food' button on their website to help connect people to food pantries in their area.

If you're on the other side and you'd like to help, you can donate either food or funds to Care and Share, or you can volunteer.
