Low budget dinner for 20

lilith | Feb 15, 200809:36 AM     42

Hi,

I am asked to prepare dinner for a group of 20 people, age between mid-30s to late 70s, for $100. At $5 per person, I thought maybe some salad, minestrone, and dinner rolls, but thought I'd ask here first and hopefully there may be some imaginative options.
They are not expecting anything spectacular or any miracle, they know you can only do so much with $5pp. Also, because of their age I am suspecting no greasy meal.

Any input?
