    I just went over last years figures with a chef adn he spends ave.$20,000 for charitable cooking during the year.

    I've done the James Beard picnic...600 servings where you get a budgeted amount that would increase by 2x if you purchase your supplies from one local distributor. Your responsible for decorations, table set up and staffing....40 cooks/chefs doing 1 dish each. Cost pre person is $40 and it fills up quickly. The money goes to James Beard House in NYC and is up for local cooking scholarships.

    SOOOO what do you do in your area?

    their is a home for abused children in my area, We plant over 1000 Bulbs on the property each fall, and then we prepare a nice dinner for the kids...and leave lot of non perishable food items. Their is also two area soup kitchens that I send a lot of food to, and during the holidays we cook 20 turkeys with sides and bring them for thanksgiving.
