I posted a message on Facebook and had 30 people interested. That was many more than I had expected. Our first cooking day was last week. I got together with 9 friends to cook. I did all of the prep work. Here is a basic idea of what I did to get ready and the recipes we made.
I try really hard to keep our meals to $1 a per person. All of our meals fed my family of 6. Our grand total including the items to freeze things in was $65 per person. Everyone went home with 10 meals in their freezer.
