My favorite pot for small dishes, boiling water, etc, suddenly began to turn
out disgusting food. I realized that some of the copper plate inside had come
off. How much per job or per square inch or per diameter (pot is about 7" high
and across, only needs a good thinck coat inside) do they charge where you
live? In the South, to be precise in New Orleans or Metairie?
It would be cheaper to buy a new solid copper pan then getting it replated.
When I use to work in a plating shop, minimum order was $35. This was 20
years ago. You could also do it yourself.
This site has all the stuff you need to electroplate at home.

Read the first reply which is spot-on. Exposing your food to a copper pan is
a bad idea. People go to great and sometimes expensive lengths to have solid
copper pans tinned to prevent food from coming in contact with the copper.
In fact about the only use I've seen in a kitchen where food is knowingly
exposed to copper is in special copper bowls which some cooks (mostly
French) beat eggwhites.

Oh yes, copper is part the nutritional scheme of things as are chromium and
selenium but only in the most miniscule amounts. But if you cook some food
that is even slightly acidic in a pan with exposed copper then it will
dissolve massive amounts of the mineral from the surface and give a nasty
tasting (and possibly borderline toxic) result. Not good eats. The good news
is that copper cookware is still common, especially in Europe, and the
proper handling and treatment for it is well known to the extent that any
decent sized city will probably have someone who re-tins copper pans. If not
there are supposed to be some mail-in services. Me, I can't afford copper
pans so I don't have to worry about it.
