See the planning and shopping for large community dinners for help with the gravy and corn. You will need 8 serving lines and at least 6 cooks and 25 servers to set up, serve and clean up this meal.

the other amounts look fine? The ham is bone-in should I add more?
10 gallons of gravy

Yes, the other amounts look fine, and you will probably have meats left over, even bone in. But that is a flood of gravy- at 1/3 cup per person, I think you need about 4 gallons- check our math.

We are planning sandwiches later on during the dance. How many dozen would you suggest doing? Your gravy math is great!!

1 regular sandwich, cut into 2-3 pieces per person, plus 10%, assuming other snacks
