How much corn to share with raccoons?

All my gardens are fortified like Ft. Knox... Wire floor, mesh sides and roof. It's necessary to thwart the various critters that like a nice all you can eat salad bar... and i've had great success, provided I remember to close the gate at night. (That didn't work out too well) I've never grown corn before but wanted to give it a whirl this year... but I just don't have the money or the energy to fence a big area. I have plenty of space, so i've been thinking I might just plant enough for my family and the neighborhood critters. I'm looking for any of your experiences with a similar approach. How many plants does it take to feed the "locals" and still have an ear or two left for yourself?
