green beans - 7 #10 cans, or 35 pounds frozen

Mac and cheese - 16 pounds dry pasta, 1 quart sauce per pound, 1/2 to 1 pound per pound of pasta

This depends partly on what pieces. Basically you want about 320 pieces, divided into baked/fried according to local taste
boneless ham - 1 pound for each 5

salad - use the plan for 100 page, do 1 2/3 the amount for 100
rolls - 20 pounds, get good ones, 4-5 pounds butter
