Raw feeding - cost?

Welp, I'm out of kibble, and am thinking of switching to raw feeding. Budget is a bit of a constraint, however. I feed Orijen at the moment, about $80 for a 30 lbs. bag that lasts 6 weeks.

So, can anyone come up with a ballpark figure of a monthly cost for feeding meat/organs/bones for a Golden Retriever in Toronto? My dog's 27.8 kilograms (61.3 pounds), and according to this calculator, I need to feed him 834 grams (1.84 pounds) per day total. Also, any insight on game meats? Can anyone recommend any cheap butcher/processor/farmer/etc. as well? I don't have a car, so my options are kind of limited. Maybe pets.ca Torontonians should have some sort of group buy? Discuss!

Thanks in advance.
