film craft services on a budget- a challenge!

luckiestduck | Apr 19, 2010 11:06 AM

I'm working on a very low budget film and have been given the responsibility of craft services. Yay! My budget is small and there are a lot of limitations, but I'm determined that people will eat well. This production has put out awful food- cheap boxes of donuts, Utz chips and cheap soda for snacks and Domino's pizza for lunch. Terrible food= unhappy crew. My budget is $200 for two days, 10-12 people per day. One day will only be noon til 5, so only needs to be good snacks. The other day is 9-6, so I'll need good snacks and at least a substantial lunch. The problem: no fridge or oven on location. There should be healthy and good junk food alternatives. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks Hounds!
