We'd asked people who were bringing rice dishes to plan for 5-6 people, i.e. make enough rice so that about 5 or 6 people can have a proper meal, starters or side dishes should in sufficient quantity to feed 20 people, and likewise with sweets - enough for 20 people, since we could cut them and distribute them among the 45 team members. But when they came the next day, there were some who got enough rice to feed 30 people. And when around 45 people bring food, there sure as hell is going to be a lot, and I mean a lot!
