We used to make it on that a month for four people.... But I would use that just to be safe.

It depends, do you eat out a lot for breakfast/lunch, or do you take along?



For dh and I, we would spend about 150/2weeks but that was buying breakfast, lunch and dinner for the two weeks plus sodas, other drinks like gatorade and waters and snacks.



So to me 300 isn't outrageous, but we definitely could've cut back.

300 sounds on the high end. Like, if you eat at home all the time and buy brand name everything.
I think if you budgeted and bought smartly, like, buy what you can in bulk(Sam's club maybe) and buy store brand of everything you can, you could make due with $150 I bet.
