I have about 30 people includind kids that I need to feed for a family birthday party. Anyone have some good ideas as to what to serve to eat? I'm think PB&J sandwiches and chips for the kids. How about the adults?

We've got a birthday party coming up too. We are doing it outside in the park and serving pasta salad, salads, crackers, hummos, cut up veggies, snacks (pretzels, potato chips, etc), fruit. We'll also have pastries & cake.
