It takes: 8 loves of bread, 3 gallons of tuna, 3 heads of lettuce and 2 quarts of mayonnaise for 100 sandwiches,
AND 4 -6 sets of caring hands.
The Churches in the area took turns making sandwiches for the homeless. My Mom gave me the recipe to pass along several years ago.

It's a good recipe. Peanut butter sandwiches, and peanut butter and jelly would be good too. I like this direct approach. I am going to organize this in my corner of the world, up near Boston. Thanks for the thought, Great Granny.

I feed 60-75 homeless women per day, Monday thru Friday. Because it was very hot this week, we had "cool" meals: leftover chicken in BBQ sauce on a bun (with salad); chili dogs and salad; fish, rice and a cold corn salad, turkey breast and roast beef wraps, stuffed with zucchini, cucumber and carrots; and tomorrow we're having sausages and a cold pasta salad. Tuna sandwiches are great, but there's an endless possibility for variation. If anyone out there needs recipes for a crowd, just let me know.

I'm glad to have this opportunity to share the IDEA of sharing. Josie, this is a good place to start. Add some recipes here at Thriftyfun to share your knowledge of feeding a group.
And Chris, you go for it. You will find it rewarding. Spread the bread. GG Hugs,Vi
I would be most grateful for any recipes for feeding a crowd. Our church is now feeding between 55-75 homeless people every other week, and I am running out of ideas. Thanks so much, Connie
