Feed the band?

Hi everyone, I volunteered to feed the marching band for band camp. I should have a partner and I think it's 35-40 kids (they will let me know for sure.) I have no ideas for feeding that many teens! Someone is already doing hot dogs with mac n cheese. I am NOT a cook- what would you provide?

I would go to Subway. Ask what kind of deal they would offer me.

subs

Could you have the kids make their own or buy subs? That is usually easy.

My daughter is at band camp right now, they have over 200 members!

I helped feed the XC team while my daughter was in high school.

We did the following:

spaghetti/salad/garlic bread

taco salad served on a bed of tortilla chips rather than taco bowls (we combined the seasoned taco meat with black and garbonzo beans, then had the onions, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, dressings, etc. on the side). Served with fruit

Chili/cornbread/salad

Sloppy joes/salad

Since our feeds were usually outdoors in park settings, we tried to come up with meals we could prepare at home and bring to the site. We did have outlets which helped with the crockpots of hot items.

Good luck

Not a bad idea.

I am doing a hot dinner for my local homeless community. I posted a while back and got some excellent ideas. Here is a link to the post...

How about a huge salad and pizza?
Salad and sandwiches (ham, cheese, salami, roast beef, turkey, PBJ)?
Spaghetti with cheese?
Chicken nuggets and tater tots?
Chili with fritos?

I would serve something like cold cuts, rolls, condiments, veggie toppings, green salad, macaroni salad, chips, salsa, cookies for dessert. Do you have access to Costco? Their deli sandwich trays are really good and are a good price-- you and your partner could split the cost and save a lot of work.

It is very nice of you to do this. My husband was in band for many years.

Buy pizza or chicken nuggets

Make two types of sandwiches-- since other food can cut in half for those who don't want whole sandwiches (peanut butter and jelly if no allergies, lunch meat and cheese, egg salad, chicken salad etc)

Garden salad

Potato or macaroni salad

Veggie and fruit tray $5-10 if do yourself-- not all kids will choose fruit and veggies so doesn't have to be huge)

Watermelon ( serve cold and will be so refreshing in hot weather, is a hit when we take it to family campmeeting each summer)

Taco bar! Brown a bunch of ground beef. Throw some chicken breasts in the crock pot. Have cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, sour cream, and tortillas and they make their own. Easy side dish is chips and salsa.

Spaghetti is also super easy to feed a crowd.

Walking Tacos

Like a taco bar, but it eliminates the need for plates. I use Fritos and different flavors of Doritos.

Is this during camp where they will go back for more practice? If so I would go with the sandwich ideas. Big meal-hot kids-more practice might not settle too well.
