Cooking for 170

I am doing a banquet for 115 adults and 40 kids under 12. We have 300 pc of fried chicken. How much pasta and potatoes do I need to cook. We also have 200 slices of ham.

I would estimate this as 1 1/3 times the amount for 100.

You have plenty of meat.

How much of the pasta and potatoes depends on what the rest of the dishes are. Also, I would either do a baked pasta, such as the baked spaghetti in the basic budget entrees, or switch to rice (baked rice pilaf)- both are easier to prep and hold better than loose pasta.

So, would you send me additional info about the menu?
