Hi everyone; I am very new at this, I have been ask to prince spaghetti and meat sauce , bread, butter and salad for 45 people. Children soccer and parents, dropping off, the providing they own serving items.. I am not sure on how much meat realistically can work for this amount of people. I am thinking 5-6 lbs and 6 pack spaghetti? I know I have to also include overhead and operation cost .
What is the best way to determine this cost? I am a bit nervous I would be to much or to little in price.
Thank you for you input in advance

8 lbs spaghetti  6 people to the pound /  6 ounces meat sauce pp  / at least 8   real  long Italian breads cut up, Kids love bread and butter /3 lbs butter in pats  / Now figure your cost based on where you are living and  availability of products , .then how much you want to make per person covering your food cost and your labor and time.> Then add 10% more for unknowns and that's it.  Good Luck
