* In ''Literature/TheBible'': In all [[Literature/TheFourGospels four Gospels]], Jesus is able to feed a few thousand people just out of a few loaves and fishes, and even have leftovers filling several baskets. One of His disciples even said it would take 200 denarii (or 200 full days' wages) in order to give that many people just a little something to eat.

* In ''Literature/TheBible'': ''Literature/TheBible'':
** In [[Literature/BooksOfKings 1st Kings chapter 17]], with God's help, a widow woman of Zeraphath was able to feed herself, her son, and the prophet Elijah for many days on just what little flour and oil she had left in the house, which upon Elijah's arrival would have been enough for just one cake of bread that would barely feed herself and her son.

* Averted in ''Series/{{Firefly}}'', where the crew's state of PerpetualPoverty has them mostly relying on processed protein in various, equally inedible flavors.



* Averted appropriately on ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' in the episode "Home Ec," where she's a guest speaker at Darlene's class (to the latter's unending embarrassment) on how to feed a family of five on a limited budget. She takes the class on a field trip to the supermarket and we're shown how to make such fine cuisine like cornflake meatloaf (of course getting the store-brand cornflakes and ground beef that's like 50% fat). Another episode shows the family getting ready to go out to dinner and divvying up a set amount for each person. Though even then, they didn't seen to worry much about frequently ordering pizza whenever the two adults were too overworked to cook.



* Averted in ''Series/DeadLikeMe''. Despite Der Waffle House being the common meeting place, the characters all have some sort of day job (except Daisy and Mason, unless sponging off of sugar-daddies and running second-rate scams count), exhibit the expected issues with money, and often just sit drinking bottomless cups of coffee for extended periods of time.

* In ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'', Scooby and Shaggy eat copious amounts of food; it's practically their defining trait. Yet the gang doesn't appear to actually have any flow of income at all. It doesn't appear that they're paid for solving the mysteries, and none of them actually have a job. Most continuities make Daphne explicitly wealthy, however, so perhaps she's treating them.
** A number of versions of Scooby Doo actually depict the characters holding a job, though it is mostly plot relevant. In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool'' (1988), Shaggy, Scooby, and Scrappy are hired as gym teachers at a girl's school. They discover too late that all their students are [[CuteMonsterGirl Cute Monster Girls]], but decide to stay on and earn their salary. Their main problem is preventing the villain of the film from kidnapping the girls.
