Cost of Food
The cost of food varies depending on
types of food needed and the amount of food needed.
On average it costs between $4.00 - $7.00 to feed
one American 2000 calories a day.
From my research, the average cost per a
soup kitchen serving 200 people a day is
roughly $1200 a day, which includes operation
expenses and overhead. It is less expensive
to feed large groups of people.
As a single person, many of you reading
this Plog have had me over for dinner or
participated in the Midtown Misfits
supper club; surprisingly soup kitchens
operate in a similar fashion. Someone
brings the food and everyone eats.
