Default How to calculate quantities for sides

I volunteered to cook for a church group and I am comfortable with the quantity I need to cook for meat as that is all I normally do. This time I am providing sides as well. I am cooking beans, creamed corn and slaw.

How do you calculate the quantity needed for 60 people?

Four ounce servings? That would be 7.5 quarts, call it 2 gallons? Plus extra for insurance against running out...

^^^^^ Is each person going have all three sides? If not than you might not need as much.

Buffet style, dished up by servers, or prepackaged in cups?

I'd do 3 half pans of beans and corn and a full pan of slaw. With my church group the slaw is a hit and miss item. Sometimes they want it, sometimes not. The age group your cooking for is less likely to overdo it. Especially the ladies.

No, because I refuse to be a patron to any Government agency.
