What Does It Take to Feed Tech·Ed?

  • More than 1,250,000 pieces of Mikes and Ikes were consumed over the course of the week.
  • 18,750 pounds of salad were prepared and offered at meals.
  • 83,700 ice cream novelty bars and fruit and yogurt bars were served.
  • 60,000 (or 5,000 dozen) eggs were eaten by attendees at breakfast.
  • It took four tractor trailer trucks to transport the 150,000 bottles of water that were consumed this week.
  • The total amount of fruit ordered for this week would fill three-quarters of a full-size tractor trailer.
  • At least 1.6 million ounces of coffee were poured.
  • More than 50,000 pounds of carbohydrates were consumed at Tech·Ed (Atkins who?).
  • 7,500 table cloths were used and reset on a daily basis.
