I've been tapped to cook for Vacation Bible School. With so many children of all ages, some with and some without parents, how do I figure the correct number of servings? Will your numbers for 100 hold true, or how should I adapt? Thanks!

Kids under 10 count as 1/2 person. Once you make this adjustment, the numbers table will hold. I can't help on the count- you will need to plan a flexible menu the first day, when you will be able to get a more accurate count.

Thanks! One last question...last year they served spaghetti, but after reading your site, I'm leery. The other days we're having burgers/hot dogs, sloppy joes, taco bar and ordering in pizza for the last day. Any other easy, kid-friendly suggestions?

Use the baked spaghetti recipe on the basic budget entree and it will be fine!
