- Nearly 11,000 eggs
- 2,346 hot dog buns
- 815lbs of rabbit meat
- More than 1,000 gallons of milk

The brother of a waiter whose body has not been recovered from the Costa Concordia, hopes the search team will find his remains.
The operation to shift the stricken Costa Concordia ship from the rocks off the Italian island of Giglio has been completed.
Engineers successfully shifted the wreckage of the stricken ship from rocks, but the salvage operation is expected to go on into the night.
