I just lost a "job" due to others doing it on the cheap. I was approached to do pulled pork (meat only). As it's a not for profit I am very familiar with and they said to price it so I'd make something (as opposed to donating time and meat) I quoted $3 per person. This way they could determine a rough cost to them closer to the event as the numbers firmed up. That actually comes out to about $9 per pound delivered - pretty reasonable.
I just got notified yesterday they found "someone" to do "full meal" for $4 per person, not including paper products. I'll be interested to see what is served and how much.
