A lot of JMT/PCT hikers mail their food to the Bishop post office, and hike out to pick it up. Two days to do it that way, but is much cheaper than a packer resupply for one or two people. Then, you get to visit our town and see "the other side of the range."
The coming pack season is likely to be very short this Summer, and the pack stations won't be getting rich, that's for sure. That situation might drive prices up. It takes one packer, one horse, and one pack mule to ferry a resupply to Leconte from Rainbow for one or two hikers, which is an overnight trip from Rainbow for the packer.
If you hike out to Bishop you'll find resources for hiking supplies: Vons and Joseph's Market, and Eastside Sports (which has backpacking food, fuel, etc.), on Main Street. A lot of hikers do that instead of mailing a package to the post office.
