I am planning to do a fruit tray and vegetable tray for 350 people. How much of each should I buy?
Cherry or grape tomatoes
Baby dill pickles
Chips and dip
Grapes red and/or green
I may not use all these but need an amount when I decide on which ones I should use
Look at the fruit tray page and the veggie tray page, Each explains how to estimate number of pieces per item (for example, bites in a standard size pineapple or pieces of celery in a bunch). Usually, about 5 pieces each, depending on what else is served. If just one tray, including both, about 8 pieces. Also, dip per pound is shown.
Chips, 6 pounds potato or 8 pounds corn per 100, 1 pint dip per pound.
It takes about 4 person hours per 100 to prepare trays from scratch
