How Much Food To Feed A Crowd (INFOGRAPHIC)

Feeding four is easy; but feeding 20 is a whole different ball game.

Feeding your family can be relatively easy -- at least when it comes to figure out how much you need to make. But when it comes to feeding a party, that can be a lot trickier. How many heads of lettuce do you need to make a salad for 30 people? And then what about hors d'oeuvres, do people at parties tend to eat multiple of each?

It can become very complicated to figure out. And you definitely want to get it right. Because if you don't make enough food you'll have hungry guests -- and no one wants to deal with a room full of hungry people. But if you make too much, you can end up wasting a lot of food and money which isn't ideal either. The experts at Stern's Catering Co. came up with a guide for those of us with less party feeding experience. Check it out.
