$9 For A Loaf Of Bread? Here’s Why It’s So Expensive To Eat At Home These Days … Bottlenecks throughout supply chains combined with rising demand are pushing up the cost of groceries.

“I took a picture of a loaf of bread for $9,” says Nakamura, who works as a part-time teacher and event planner. “Technically, it was $8.99. But who can afford that?”

Nakamura’s experience is far from isolated. Grocery prices spiked when the pandemic started in March 2020, as restaurants closed and everybody stayed home for school and work. Since then food prices have been on a roller coaster and are rising again, according to numbers from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
