Well, my 1 pound meatloaf feeds 5 big eaters, so.

I would estimate 1/4 lb per person, so 25 lbs should feed approximately 100 people.

We usually figure 1/4 # of meat per person. This includes any meat/fish dish.

Hi, depending on 2nds it should feed between 65 about 85 people and how large the cut pieces are. I would think a hefty 1/3 of a pound per hungry person. So figure it out as 25lbs. divided by .33% per person is 85.

I hope this helps. As I am sure there are other sides they will serve with this so this should be figured into the equation of how many to serve. I hope it turns out so good your recipe is asked for!

A meatloaf that size might be hard to cook all the way through. I suggest making it into several small loaves. I would think it could serve at least 60 people.

50 punds of ground Chuck should feed 200 adults. Do you agree ?
