It is easier to feed 150 people than you might think. It simply takes 1 trip to a local grocery store or a call to Coborns Delivers to purchase the supplies, and then preparing 150 sandwiches. Six people can prepare 150 sandwiches in about 30 minutes. The total cost is approximately $100 total, and it will end up feeding 150 people in urgent need.

Step 2: Purchase food as follows:
|•||Meat: Pre-packaged turkey, chicken or turkey bologna products that make eight helpings per package (two slices per sandwich). 19 packages is plenty.|
|•||Cheese: There are packages of cheese that come in quantity of 72. Buy two packs plus another small eight pack. (one slice per sandwich)|
|•||Bread: A loaf of bread generally makes 10 sandwiches. 15 loaves.|
