I was originally going to do a nacho bar but once I started looking at prices I decided against it. Instead we are going to do shredded chicken and sloppy joe sandwiches. My guest list is 140 people. Do you think that 14 pounds of shredded chicken and 15 pounds of sloppy joe will be enough? TIA

I’ve always heard 1/4 lb per person, so using that you are just a little short.
But, depending on how many sides and things you are having.. you might be okay.

@jenilynevette: If you go by a 1/4lb a person, you should chose it by 1/4lb per person, per menu item… which if my math is correct .25×140= 35lb chicken and 35 pounds sloppy joe.
You may end up with a lot of people who dont eat sloppy joe.. and will only eat the chicken and vise versa. Its always better to have more, than less.
