Um... my ex uncle used to do this to his family - they'd have a very strict budget for everything except his lotto money. Eventually my aunt saw him for the controlling abusive man he was and got him out of her's and the kid's lives. Not suggesting your father is the same... hope he's not.

Food bank? Or he might get the point when there's nothing to eat in the house. Though $30 isn't actually that bad for a single week of groceries, but hats for one or two adults, where as it seems like you are a teenager and thus still running at a higher metabolic rate as you grow.

Holy shit, where do you live that you can feed two adults on 30 bucks a week? 15 each? Living on dried beans and homemade bread AND NOTHING ELSE for three meals a day wouldn't quite make it down to that around here.

How about send him to get everything needed for the week and see what he comes up with. Remind him too, everything for the week for three people; so no return trips! It's hard to do if you don't have inventory of what you do have and don't account for longer lasting items. (Bags of Rice, Potatoes, Pasta, condiments)

Next time he sends you grocery shopping with only $30 buy a couple cases of instant ramen and give him the receipt and if he complains the following week get mac and cheese rince and repeat until he gets the point

OP's dad gave them only $30, though, and won't renegotiate
