Hi everyone,

@ Irfanahmed333,
Please note that you are somewhat off-topic on this thread which revolves around "Cost of living".

You should create your own topic on the Working in Georgia category of the forum so that members can easily advise you.

All the best,

how much food cost is for per day ?
