I don't do pro advice on this site, it is aimed at family and volunteer cooks. Try the pro boards:

When you say no profit, are you going to pay yourself? Are you dropping off food or overseeing on site? Is it a typical 5-8 hour party where you want both a meal type arrangement and then snacks? All these affect the food plan.

Pros use Cambros, preheated plastic bins that keep food hot for hours. Sometimes seen at Sams or Costco, available at restaurant supply houses. Check into it.

ok thinks i was thinking for that type of budget to do a drop off & maybe a set up with snack type of foods like wings dips chili fries, nachos, ect.

i've tried most but i pack in styro foam food containers. thinking about maybe changing containers.

$300 for just food allows a much larger choice. If you are paying yourself, what is the actual budget for the food, and are you covering beverages?
