What main dishes will be safe in the heat?

My reunion is in July in Ohio and our shelter does not have A/C. Any suggestions on main dishes that would be safe in the heat?


- Lots of coolers. Loads of ice. Put the food table in the coolest shady spot. Keep the food covered. A little shade goes a long way keeping things on ice cooler longer.

- Disposable chafing dishes will keep food safely for 4 hrs.

- We are having an outdoor picnic in Orlando in August and it will be catered in a park shelter. The hot foods will be put in pans with sterno warmers to keep them hot, and cold foods will be put on ice.
