How to Cook for Camp

  • Please cook for about 30 people, i.e. 2 large pans of casserole or 3 gallons of soup. The current population at camp is about 45, but not everyone is in camp at dinner-time every day.
  • Foil pans are a great way to deliver food because they're inexpensive, you can cook in them, and you can leave them at camp.
  • Meat is very much prized. Protein foods in general are scarce and therefore highly valued: meat, cheese, and milk top the list. Beans – though a legitimate source of protein – are so pervasive in a low-budget diet that they are generally less favored.
  • Please note that our residents may have dental problems due to inadequate preventative care. All foods should be cooked until tender. Raw salad – though healthy – is not popular because of chewing problems! Vegetables cooked tender are very popular.
  • Anything you do will be most appreciated. Even if you do not have a complete meal for 30 people, your contribution will go into the kitchen tent to be combined with other foods.

A "full-size foil steam table pan" is a great choice for delivering food. They can be had for 78¢ at Cash and Carry.
