Could I get feedback as to whether or not the below quantities of food would be (more than) ample for a dinner buffet for 240 adult guests:

APPETIZERS: (Crudite with Cheese/Crackers/Veggies/Bruschettas, Chipotle Lime Meatballs, Crab-stuffed Shrooms):

* 15 # cubed cheese
* 15# trimmed veggies
* 5# crackers
* bruschetta crustinis with 10# romas
* bruschetta crustinis with 6# asparagus
* 26# ground veal and pork for meatballs
* 10# portobellos and 2# crab for stuffed shrooms
* 490 - 1oz. pieces of spanakopita

SALAD: (served family-style in 26 bowls)

* 12# spinach
* 9# cherry tomatoes
* 5# shaved parmesan
* 6# croutons

DINNER BUFFET: (at an un-manned dinner buffet: grilled chicken breast and top sirloin, manicottis with roasted squash and red pepper cream sauce, roasted green beans)

* 261 - 4oz. grilled chicken kabobs
* 261 - 4oz. grilled top sirloin kabobs
