For me, this is a kind of slow time of business, after Christmas and before Mothers day, and it seems like I am getting more and more people coming to me looking for charity based orders. Just last week gave away 35 wraps/burritos for a local high school club.
Today I gave away two 25 dollar gift certificates for a local Chowder Challege type of thing, and this weekend I am catering for 250 for a relay for life activity. And its not cheap stuff. Maple Glazed Pork Loin, Chicken and Sausage gumbo, Roasted Chicken and Potatoes, Individual Beef Wellingtons, Lobster Bisque, and an assortment of sides and salads. I am getting paid, but I am only charging 4$ a person, which just about covers food cost and overhead.
I love helping our local schools, churches, organizations as well as local and national charities, but its ALOT of time, and almost no money coming in, if any.
Any of you guys have this going on recently? Any words of wisdom?
