Good, mid-afternoon cuts the food by about 25%. We will assume 180.

Ham rolls-600- slider size? 2 per person are plenty
Chicken salad canapés-600- again, 2
Fruit trays-6 pineapple,2-watermelon,5#grapes,5qts strawberries
Not enough. See the deluxe tray for 100,do1 and 1/2.
Cheese-5# each cheddar,pepper jack,colby cubes you need a mild white, jack or Swiss, same amount
Veggie tray-5# each celery,tomatoes,cukes,carrots-OK, adding 5 pounds broc or cauliflower would be fine
20# shrimp with gal cocktail sauce- either have 1 pound per 5 people, or skip it- 1 cup sauce per 6
320-cookies fine
320-brownies fine
9-gallons lemonade, maybe a gallon or 2 lite.
9 gallons sweet tea
6 gallonsunsweet
3 gallons water
You will have some beverages left, but hard to say what
gallon ranch dip, mayo and honey mustard,
Fruit dip-gallon
you will have some left

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

Cassie, the mac only serves about 12 per pan this time of day.

You need one ounce of meat per ham sandwich, 360 ounces, about 24 pounds.

Same per chicken sandwich, about 24 pounds.
