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....

That's as much as I would make.  People at feasts always eat much less 
rice than you initially imagine.  Same goes for pasta, couscous, groats, 
frumenty, etc.
