The UJA-Federation of New York set a Guinness World Record making 1,660 sandwiches in one hour to be donated to feed the hungry. The sandwich marathon was part of the annual Mitzvah Day, dedicated to doing good deeds to benefit local Jewish communities.
After recording the event for Guinness World Record certification, the sandwiches were donated to the Queens Jewish Community Council in Forest Hills and to the Long Island-based Interfaith Nutrition Network.
“UJA-Federation mitzvah projects are designed to energize children and families from the Jewish community into action,” explained Amy Mandell, co-chair of the UJA-Federation Guinness World Record. “The challenge of making more than 1,500 sandwiches to set the record in just one hour stepped up the excitement into a frenzy of good will.”
