Good luck, hope it works out well.

I am a little concerned here. Being familiar with catering in this area, it sounds like you may be a bit unprepared to do this legally.

Do you have a commissary agreement? The KC health department does not let you cook for profit from your home.

Do you have insurance to cover you in the scenario where someone gets sick? If not, and you're not set up as an LLC or other legal entity, you could personally be on the hook for a lot of money and legal issues.

Have you ever cooked for that many people? It's a lot different and a lot tougher than cooking for your family and friends.

There are a lot of considerations to take into account here, and while I don't want to discourage you, these are things that you need to be prepared for. Amount of food is important, price is important, but not going broke and getting into legal issues is more important.
