Question by  BartemausS (2)

How many cans of tuna will I need to make salad for sandwiches for 100 people?

I am making sandwiches for a party and need an estimate on how many cans I will need.


Answer by  maber (1427)

I am basing this off of one can feeding my family of 3. To feed 100 people, you would need 34 cans.

Assuming that one 6-ounce can of tuna, mixed with relish and mayonnaise and boiled eggs and whatnot, yields three sandwiches, and budgeting that each person will eat an average of a sandwich and a half, you'll need 150 sandwiches altogether, and that'll require 50 cans of tuna. Sound right?


Answer by  Cali2307 (1337)

It depends on the size of can, and the best practice would be to look at the servings on the can that you choose. 12 ounce cans usually have 5 servings, in which case you would need 20 cans of tuna. This would make 100 well-stacked half tuna sandwiches or 100 thinner layered full tuna sandwiches.

well it depends on the size of the tuna cans. or you could check the serving sizes and everything. just assume everyone is going to eat around two servings and then you will find it.
