The Grocery Challenge

I think it is great that they have the thread about reducing the grocery bill down to $50 a week. There is very useful information in it.
It is usually for a family of four. While most people have small families like this, I sometimes get frustrated because I have to cook for 9 people-5 of which are teen-agers. Large appetites.
I think I do really well for my groceries though-the most I spend in a month might be $500 for everyone. I do use coupons, but they are attached to my store card-easy to use without having to clip. And I shop the sales around the different stores.
I would love to see a thread that shows how to cook cheaply for larger groups. Not only would this be good for families like me, but maybe also for people who cook for large groups-like summer camps or such.
Just a thought........
