Recipe For Feeding The Homeless

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.

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.

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'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
