As I understand it, that is pretty much what was done here too. Most 
of what is in the possession of the barony is service gear but there 
are pots and a few other specific cooking items.

Another idea is to ask members if they would donate some items for 
the group. People will donate a lot of things if they are asked to 
make a contribution.

Or you could have a fund raiser of some sort to help defray costs.

A good point, I think that if the gear were available, it would get 
more use than you might imagine it would before you got it.
