I am coordinating a potluck at work for a team of over 70 people. I need an idea of how many items to ask for. Preferably broken up with the categories of:

Appetizer
Salad
Maindish
Desserts
Beverages

Thanks!

The full 2" pan serves about 7 quarts, 28 1 cup servings. The half pan is only about 3 to 3 1/2 quarts. It is not clear how much you are making.
