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.

Grilled Figs Arugula Salad with Roasted Pepper Vinaigrette

Photo of Grilled Figs Arugula Salad with Roasted Pepper Vinaigrette

Lots of fresh figs have been showing up in the grocery store. Bought a case last week, and this was the first recipe we made with these fresh figs. Grilling is definitely a good technique, which really gives some nice caramelization to the taste. We grilled the figs in the pan, and it came out delicious. Then just simply whipped up a very tasty vinaigrette, tossed it with greens. A delicious salad was ready to serve.
