New - very - to this site...........

Hello to all out there!

We are looking for some advice. Shortly - november - we have to cater for 2000 people for lunch and dinner on a tight budget: p50 (Philippines)
The guest are vegetarians, but do eat fish. This is not a problem...the fish is easy.
What I would like advice on is: how to work out quantity of vegatables for Chop Suey for this group.

Any ideas anyone?

You will want at least 1/2 pound, (500kg) per person each meal. If serving with rice, you may need less in the vegetable department, perhaps half of what I listed above. 500-1000 pounds/500-1000K for the two meals.

Hello Princess Fiona

Thank you for your reply, but I think your quantities are way out.........for a start, 1 pound = 450g. Thus, 1/2lb = 225 grams.

But thanks for your advice.
