Soup and salad, or chili,salad and cornbread. Sandwiches made on small rolls, croissants or bagels and salad or fruit and cookies or brownies. It a luncheson, so keep it light and simple. Even a Pancake Luncheon might be fun!

How about a variety of soups, salads and sandwiches. Chili, Veggie, Taco soups-- Tossed, macaroni, potatoe salads-- offer different breads for sandwiches and wraps too.

For easy church luncheons for small groups (less than 50) I always shop GFS. Chicken salad on croissants, potato chips with french onion dip, Relish plate with veggie dip, and brownies. I usually cook a couple of chicken breast and add to the chicken salad, and make a fresh fruit salad.

What about a turkey salad, a 7-layer salad, a pasta salad, some crackers and rolls and a fruit salad for dessert?
