Soups for 120 people
Hope

Having a women's conference at our church. I'm in charge of soup. I'm planning on 3 types (chicken noodle, vegetable beef and potato). How many gallons of each soup would I need to prepare for 120 people? We are also serving salad and sandwiches.

1 gallon per 12 for a single flavor, but you have to make enough to accommodate everyone's first choice, so you will need 12-14 gallons gallons. Consider doing 1 roaster of each and be sure the potato is vegetarian- many bacon garnish goes on the side. 5 each for potato and whichever of the meat soups you think will be most popular, 3-4 of the other probably OK. You will likely have some left.

Figure 1/2 sandwich per person. the amount of salad for 100 on the plan for 100 page is about right with the rest of the food.

If this saves you time, trouble, or money, please make a donation, maybe a dime per guest, to support this site. Thank you.
