It is a church function however....a quick prayer like John 6:11 and you never know how many you could feed.
I think he said it is all getting shredded or pulled. So I think they will be doing pulled pork and shredded chicken sandwiches.

But I still don't think its enough for 300 people, but I am not sure how many shredded chicken sandwiches you get from a chicken
