Hedging your grocery bill

I'm wondering if I can somehow hedge my annual grocery bill against inflation? For example, if your grocery bill is $10,000 per year (food, household consumables, food for 2 dogs and 1 voracious cat) is there a mutual fund or ETF for a broad ased commodity fund that would correlate with the rise in food prices that you could invest $10,000 and thereby hedge your grocery bill?

Okay, I don't know why I go to these links you post in here, Maddy, but look what I found when I went to that Wikipedia site!

Possibly THE FUNNIEST first dance at a wedding I've ever seen! ROFLMAO!
Thanks, Maddy!
