Many of you homemakers are often asked to help plan and carry out a meal for a large gathering such as junior-senior or father-son banquets, lodge luncheons, farm organization or civic group luncheons, P. T. A. meetings, church picnics, and county-wide events such as crop shows . and achievment days. Some extension club women in South Dakota are school lunch cooks and have received special training in large quantity food preparation and service. Others of you may become volunteers in disaster feeding at some time. The tips in this booklet for planning, preparing, and serving have been gathered from authorities in largequantity food service. Many suggestions are based on engineering and efficiency studies conducted by restaurants and institutions. A study of these suggestions will make your job easier.
