Is this a plated meal or self serve?

Buttered parsley potatoes, cole slaw, fruit, raw veggies, corn, bread and baked beans., are all covered in the plan for 100 page, 4 times the amount for 100.

For the meats, I need to hear whether you are serving per person or it is self serve. At a minimum you would be looking at 1/2 pound raw weight robs PLUS 4 ounces raw boneless chicken PLUS 3 ounces cooked pilled pork, which is 1 pound raw per 4

OK. Then the above ought to work. But have someone serve the ribs for the first round or you may run out-

By the way, to serve 400 in a timely way, you need 8 serving lines. plus separate beverage (at least 4) and dessert stations.
