What I try to do for a potluck, is to divide it so that the costs are similar for everyone, and there is enough food. You have to know how many people will be bringing things as well as how many will be eating. I am working on an article on that right now.

For total amounts for 150, allowing seconds, you want:

coleslaw,4 gallons cole slaw
baked beans, 5 gallons baked beans
potato salad, 5-6 gallons
mac&cheese, 12 pounds dry pasta (one pound makes about a 9x13)
Bread/rolls, 15 pounds, 4 pounds butter
