Places to find cheap blocks of cheddar?

Hi, I'm looking for a bulk block of cheddar cheese to be used as a prop in a play. We have a character grating cheese and we're going through the small packages pretty quickly. No one eats it so it doesn't have to be good. Any recs on where I might buy some? Thanks in advance!

      The aged cheddar in the black package at Costco is the very best. i've treied others and they are not comparable.

    2. check out the 2nd avenue cheese store (maybe called the east village cheese store) around 10th street on the north side of 2nd avenue

      they sell "closeout" cheese and often have cheese for 2.99 #

        East Village Cheese is on the west side of Third Avenue near 10th .

      2. C-Town or Met food seems to be where you kind find the worst food. Both can be found in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I imagine you can find large discount blocks of cheddar.

        1. What a waste of food, not to mention the smell and the possibility of attracting critters. Why not be creative and try to see if you can find something like a chedder cheese shaped wax candle or even soap.
