hmm....$40 isn't much compared to what i usually eat so i'd stick to the basics:
Lg container of plain oatmeal
bag of brown rice
5lbs bulk ground beef 85/15 (leaner = more expensive)

If I had $40 to spend on food each week I'd get a better job.

Go to Costco, Sams Club or something like that.
Buy the following in bulk:
Tuna, ground beef(70/30), bulk pork, sweet potatoes and vegetables.
You can definitely manage with $40 a week, if you don't mind repetition, I've been eating the same thing day in and day out for the last 3 weeks, either tuna/salmon with mayo, sweet potatoe and veggies or pork chops with sweet potatoes and veggies, it's not the money, I just hate any kind of cooking.

Omen is a good example of what to do with limited income. I've had this situation before. You can always apply to food stamps if your not making enough. I did and it helped me save 150 $$ a month on food(which was gone in two weeks max)

Food in the states is SO cheap. I blew a load when I walked into Costco for the first time when I was over there. They even give you free food at the end of each aisle, just to keep you going. I didn't want to leave!

I would by a 5lb tub of ON Whey every week, and use it all. Then I would hunt the rest of my food with my bare hands (good cardio), I would eat mostly dear and rabbit. Also instead of mowing my yard I would just sit outside and graze for a couple hours. Anything else if felt hungry for I would just steal from my neighbors house, running from the police is just more cardio.
