I believe that I would call one of the Larger Churches there in Nashville. The ones that serve meals on Wednesday nights.

The person who plans and prepares those meals for such a large crowd would probably be glad to help you with the amounts you would need to buy to feed 50 people. And could probably tell you the best place to purchase your veggies too.
