Having sexual intercourse with the wife during Ramadaan assuming that dawn has not broken yet

Question: Three years ago, I had sexual intercourse with my wife during one Ramadaan night.

Therefore, I prepared a charity food for this purpose but could not feed the complete number of sixty poor people. Should my wife and I feed sixty poor people collectively or individually? If it is unfeasible to feed 60 poor people in total, how much should we pay approximately, instead and how and where should we pay it?

Please, bear in mind that I have been feeling guilty about having done so ever since, especially during the blessed month of Ramadaan.
