Please consult the calendar to find a good day to bring a meal to camp. Please email CampSecondChance@rumblecrash.com to let us know you will be coming, or if you have questions. Below the calendar are simple guidelines about how to cook for camp. Thank you!
How to Cook for Camp
- Please cook for 30-40 people, i.e. 2 large pans of casserole or 3 gallons of soup. The current population at camp is about 45, but not everyone is in camp at dinner-time every day.
- Foil pans are a great way to deliver food because they’re inexpensive, you can cook in them, and you can leave them at camp. If you leave pots or implements, it’s likely you will get them back, but it’s not certain!
- We have paper plates, bowls, and cups, and plastic silverware. You don’t need to bring those.
- Please note that our residents may have dental problems due to inadequate preventative care. All foods should be cooked until tender. Raw salad – though healthy – is not popular because of chewing problems! Vegetables cooked tender are very popular.
- Meat is very much prized. Protein foods in general are scarce and therefore highly valued: meat, cheese, and milk top the list. Beans – though a legitimate source of protein – are so pervasive in a low-budget diet that they are generally less favored.
- Anything you do will be most appreciated. Even if you do not have a complete meal for 40 people, your contribution will go into the kitchen tent to be combined with other foods.
