2 suggestions:
 - buy a minnow trap at the bait store and use it to catch your own at a
local lake.  Then put these in a 10- 20 g tank and feed as required.
 - get Zebra Dino fish (striped and similar to minnows) and breed them in a
tank.  To breed them you have a 2-5 g tank covered with marbles on the
bottom of the tank.  Put the female (with eggs) in with 2-3 males and they
will fertilize the eggs as they drop to the bottom.
The marbles keep the adults from getting to the eggs till you remove the
adults to another tank.  This will give you lots of food.
