[Sca-cooks] Rice and servings

Ok I cooked rice just the other day and pretty much fed 150-175 with 3 quarts (dry) white rice.   Now granted these were kids but we serve them just under 1/2 cup and I serve 10 kids per quart (cooked rice)  that equals out to 8 adult servings.....I don't know if that helps but I would estimate that it was about 6-8 lbs of rice....

My yield for those 3 quarts was about 24  quarts cooked.  There was some left but not much.  
Good luck,

I think if you make all that rice you're going to have a LOT left over. I
think you're *over* estimating. -- Iasmin
