Feeding the homeless on a small budget 100 - 150 ppl


I am looking for inexpensive recipes to feed the homeless. We have been feeding for a short while and can only come up with the typical bean soup or pasta dishes. Does anyone have creative dishes that is inexpensive. We depend on what God provides and the bit of money we can afford.

I'm not sure what your resources are for purchasing food, but you should be able to increase many recipes to fit your needs. Find recipes that are very budget conscious such as Tater Tot Casserole or Chicken Pot Pie and increase for the number you feed. Many recipe sites have budget meal/recipe sections that you should be able to adapt to feeding so many also.

I found this link http://recipesforacrowd.com/ it's kind of geared towards events, but the recipes offer options for using fresh or canned items, which might make them adaptable for your use.

I don't have any actual recipes to offer though, sorry.

Go Mexican/Spanish we (Hispanic & Mexican are accustomed to feeding the masses. Check out some of the recipes on line for Spanish food. Doesn't have to be spicy but can be. Source for you local farmers market. At the end of the market most venders will be glad to donate product usually organic to a worthy cause.

Chocolate Marbled Angel Food Cake

Photo of Chocolate Marbled Angel Food Cake

Once a while my sweet tooth needs a bit satisfaction, but I don't want a rich and decadent cake all the time, so angel food cake is my to-bake cake at this type of occasion. Made this chocolate marbled angel food cake two weeks ago, and it came out airy, light and delicious. The only thing was that I knocked too many air bubbles out while I was making the marble effect with the paring knife, which more or less caused the cake not fully rise in the end. But as the picture shows here, the cake was still quite fluffy. Eating it plain was delicious enough, or with some whipped cream or chocolate sauce for a richer taste, or fruit compote or just some jam. Of course you can make parfait with it as well, the appealing looking will impress everyone.
