This is not enough food for 250 people. What is the entire menu.

Have a vegetarian sandwich- Boca Burgers or Morning Star- a case or 24 is about right for this size group.

Ellen This is my revised menu but it's now for 270 people. 240 hot dogs, 120 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut in half), 264 1/2lb bugers, 40lbs potato salad, 35lbs tossed salad, 270 individule bags of chips, 288 ice cream bars. Thank you for the advice.

Halve the hot dogs and consider Polish sausages or kielbasa if this is grown ups. You need at least 8 gallons of potato salad (I usually recommend 10-11). You still need a case of veggie burgers. For sandwich condiments, lettuce, onions, etc, see the sandwich page.

If this saves you time, trouble or money, consider a donation to support this site.
