Your Kaffarah should be feeding ten poor and needy people with the kind of food that you eat and/or feed your family. To Feed 10 people it is $50 ($5 per person per meal). If you are unable to pay the amount required, then you must fast for 3 consecutive days instead.
What is the difference between Fidya and Kaffarah?
Fidya is the compensation for days of fasting that one has missed and could not fulfill due to a valid Islamic excuse without any possibility of making it up.
Kaffarah, on the other hand, concerns compensation for oaths that were intentionally broken and or fasts intentionally broken during Ramadan. The amount of compensation paid for each of these broken oaths differs.
Kaffarah is compulsory on the person who has broken an oath or has intentionally broken their fast during Ramadan. These actions require a person to pay a Kaffarah to compensate for a sinful act, (without valid reasons like having a health condition, being sick or being a traveler).
How to calculate your Kaffarah?
Breaking a fast in Ramadan intentionally requires a person to either fast 60 consecutive days or feed 60 people. The estimated cost to feed 1 person is $5.
Total Kaffarah amount to be paid is a minimum $300 ($5 x 60 days).
As for the Kaffarah for breaking an oath, a person is required to feed 10 people at $5 per person as a bare minimum which equated to the amount of $50.
