I hope it goes well and is a comfort. I assume most are adults, esp. older adults, as you will not have leftovers. If a young person, add about 10%

6lbs Ham 6lbs Chicken Salad 6lbs beef
160 Rolls
condiments on the side
Mayo 3 quarts Mustard 1 quart
9 lbs sliced Tomatoes
3 lbs sliced Red onion
1 lg box spring mix (not needed)
This suggests there will be none left.
Consider adding a gallon of pickles or mixed marinated veggies

1 Tray cubed Cheese- you want about 10-12 pounds, some can be cream cheeses or logs/balls or pimento cheese.
Add 6 pounds crackers
3 Veggie Tray serves 20 ea- Ranch dip
4 Fruit Trays serves 20 ea-
20 lbs Potato Salad
20 lbs Pasta Salad
3 lg boxes and 6 heads Romain for green Salad- OK but consider doing 2 1/2 gallons of cole slaw instead- can be made ahead, does not require multiple dressings

Chips and Salsa 8 pounds potato or 10 corn chips, about 4-5 quarts dips or salsa

Cookies and Brownies
10-12 dozen (2 per person)

Drinks
3 gallons coffee Cream & Sugar, have some decaf
Lemonade and water will be in dispensers
4 gallons Water
4 gallons Lemonade
Coke 24 12oz cans Diet Coke 24 Sprite 24-

Thank you so much!! your help is greatly appreciated.
I am going to add 10% more in case there are younger.
so do I add 10% to all food items. Also for 20lbs of Pasta would that be 4 or 5 1lb boxes dry. Thank you again!!

I usually do 6 pounds dry for 100, so with the potato salad, 5 would be OK.
