Feeding poor people for breaking an oath

Q: I broke few oaths made in my lifetime. In order to do the kaffarah, I have to feed 10 persons 2 times or buy clothes or fast for 3 days. Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah, I can afford to sponsor food for 10 persons twice. But it’s difficult for me to feed the same 10 persons twice. Can I feed 20-30 persons once or shall I fast 3 days (easiest option)?

A: If it is difficult to feed then why don't you give ten poor people each the amount of sadaqatul fitr as the kaffarah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
