We just had a tremendous fundraiser (over $800) selling food mixes in a jar for $5 each. Most popular were Rainbow Bean Soup, Black Bean Soup, Red Beans and Rice, Herbed Cornbread, Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies, Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Fruit Nut Cookies. Supplies were donated. If you are looking for the least expensive ingredients and quickest to make, the soup mixes, Red Reans and Rice, cornbread and Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies are your best choices. I found most of the recipes in a book called "Gifts in a Jar" at a craft mall. You can also find good recipes on the internet.

Have fun! 8) It's a lot of work, but people appreciate it. Assembly line works great. Many times it is much cheaper to buy in bulk than packages. The most valuable purchase I made was a wooden tamp to get the ingredients to press tightly in the jar. It makes it easier to pour ingredients into the jar if you cut the bottom out of a plastic drinking cup and use it as a funnel. Let me know if you have any questions.

Our club did this with brownie mixes last year - its a great way to profit and the kids have a blast in the lines! (ours did anyways) We decorated the jars with fabric covers over the lids tied with raffia and a tag attached wishing the people a wonderful holiday with instructions on how to make the goodies in the jar edible.
