Vegetarian menus for large groups, link below. It would take some creative shopping for the staples which would keep so the meals could be put together at the time.

I suppose if I were feeding a large survival group and there were vegetarians there,
I would try to have these on the menu regularly, maybe not all at the same time, but here's a list to start out:

apples slices (if any) with tahini spread on them
rice,
beans   
beans with no lard or bacon
chili with some canned survival soymeat granules put in
miso soup made of miso and tahini (sesame butter)
some dehydrated seaweed on the side for people to put in
sesame salt
garlic salt
Mrs. Dash - type seasoning
potatoes and root vegetables  (Some members will eat these; some will not)
olive oil and butter served on the side...
dried nuts
dried fruits
canned fruits

Here's a page with "Cheap Vegetarian Menus." Even bearing in mind we may not have all the ingredients we need, there are some good ideas.
There could always be something served which vegetarians could eat.
Also for non vegans - many vegetarians could eat the homemade yogurts... every survival group should have an  area where yogurt is being made, sprouts are being grown, mushrooms are grown (somewhere in the shelter). Cook should love food and be willing to do these things like grind raw organic grain; bake bread...
Each group will be different. In the beginning I am sure many groups will consider themselves lucky just to have some kind of canned or MRE food to eat... water and juice. As time goes on, G-d willing there will be some really good eats. Remember not everyone will be able to eat pork spam and eggs... etc. at least keep some oatmeal on supply and some rice beans and all... ;D

Oh! Add soysauce to the list.
If you can get it Tamari femented soysauce and don't forget the miso and soybean. These are staples...

Cheap Vegetarian Menus

Breakfast
 
Oatmeal is a more nutritious alternative to pre-packaged breakfast cereals and a much better value. Buying oats in bulk or in canisters of quick oats is cheaper than individual packets of instant oatmeal. Add some slivered or chopped nuts, a banana and a cup of milk or soymilk for a complete and inexpensive breakfast. Scrambled tofu, a few tomato slices and hashbrowns are filling. Regular or soy yogurt with fresh fruit is also good for breakfast.
 
Lunch
 
Soups and salads are quick, inexpensive meal options for lunch. Lentil and bean soups are nutritious, and the ingredients are cheap. Add onion, potato and carrot to your soup and serve with a salad of seasonal mixed greens for a full meal. A homemade vinaigrette is usually cheaper than bottled salad dressings. Buy whole grain breads when they are on sale and keep the extra in the freezer to have on hand for sandwiches.
 
Dinner
 
Pasta is a great budget-stretching choice for dinner. Canned tomatoes are not as expensive as jarred sauces and cook down quickly to make a pasta topping. Diced vegetables, white beans and sautéed tofu also make healthy pasta toppings. Make homemade polenta instead of using the packaged tubes to save money. Serve with tomato sauce and mushrooms or sautéed greens. Stir fries let you use an assortment of vegetables, including leftovers that might go to waste. Add a protein such as tofu or beans and you have a cheap one pot meal.

Roasted vegetables are a tasty alternative to steamed, and salads are always a good accompaniment to dinner.
 
Dessert
 
Fruit is a healthy dessert, and if you buy local fruits when they are in season, you can keep the cost down. A bowl of fresh strawberries sprinkled with a little sugar is a nice end to a meal. Baked apples and simple poached pears are elegant desserts that require minimal ingredients to prepare.

Linda and Susan are well on the way in dehydrating their fruits and veggies for storing.
This is something we should all be finding time to do. Lightweight, and will be a necessity in the future, most likely.

There are some home pasta making supplies. The raw grains can be ground, mixed and sliced and hung to dry... pasta and sauces to choose from would be a good budget stretcher for a large group of people..
Some people would not eat tomato sauce but would eat a dairy based sauce. Vegans will most likely choose olive oil and garlic and/or garlic salt.
I sometimes love spaghetti with just olive oil and soysauce and/or with garlic salt...
You could serve the reconstituted veggies and people could grab what they want to ahve withheir pasta.
Corned bread with canned butter and/or honey or mollasses would be a filling way to end the meal along with some tea... Hot cornmeal also very filling... One of those foods not everyone will eat but it is good and filling.
