My parents used to cater weekly for church events and it was 4 to 8 ounces per person, total.

1/4 lb of each year per person. About 36 pounds of each for 150 people.

Use 4 ounces of fruit per person not counting the peels. About 1 to 1 1/2 ounces of each cheese per person.

If you are going by ounces a person would eat and most people would estimate between 4 to 8 ounces per person. You are looking at 37.5 pounds each of cheese and fruit.

This is based on 4 ounces per person. I would take an average of 6 ounces per person which would be 56 pounds of each.
