Default Cole Slaw Question

I have to make cole slaw for a picnic this weekend. There will be 80 to 90 people, about 15 will be kids. How much slaw do you think I should make for that many people? Gonna have corn and chips for the other sides. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I am going to the store in a few to buy cole slaw fixings for 100. I buy my cabbage pre-shredded and go by serving on the back of the package. I will check back in when I return.

I was going to say 8-10lbs which when I prepare it come out right at 2 gallons using 2 - 5lbs course shredded bags of cabbage.

Thanks Guys. I was gonna use the shredded bags from Restaurant Depot. I'm not sure what those weigh but should be able to figure out. Thanks again.

We use one bag of shredded slaw mix from RD for 50 people when we have apps, 2-3 meats, potato salad and garlic bread.
