How can I keep pasta from sticking to itself?

We have a spaghetti dinner at our church and the problem is is that we don't mix it in with sauce because some don't want sauce others don't want a lot of sauce some do. So my question is after I cook the pasta I put it in a colander to drain and it sets till ready to put in hotel pan on the steam table, however by then it's stuck together, how can I keep this from happening or how do I keep it from happening?
