It can be a good idea but you will need to have an inspected and licensed kitchen with everyone doing all of their cooking from there, buying and keeping all of the ingredients there as well.

Do a google search for meal co-op.

There are a couple in Houston.

Keep in mind not everyone is a good cook.

You might have to do actual blind taste tests to decide the core cooking group.

You can also sell to members from outside your group if you pay taxes on the sales.

Would offset your operation expenses.

There is a co-op not far from me operating out of a church kitchen.

Not exactly sure how the whole thing is structured (not my sort of church if ya know what I mean) but once a week you drop by and choose containers large enuf for your family.

Hand those over along with your order and they fill them up.

Then take home and have freezer meals for 5 days.

They do this on Tuesdays and the church parking lot is packed.

I get it Pete.

Never hurts to offer an alternative tho.

Most new members come with a specific question or to run something past the community to see if it will fly.

Sometimes we rag them to the point where they rabbit....never to return.

Non pros can have pretty thin skin and don't realize they are only getting a bit of "tough love" /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif.
