 Most sandwiches made in one hour:
Eckrich Bacon Lovers Deli Meats breaks Guinness world record

 
NEW YORK, NY, USA -- With the help of more than 100 volunteers and participants from Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit providing emergency financial and food assistance to military veterans, wounded warriors and their families, Eckrich Bacon Lovers Deli Meats made 2,706 hero sandwiches in one hour and set the new world
record for Most sandwiches made in one hour, according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/most sandwiches made in one hour world record set by Eckrich Bacon Lovers Deli Meats.

  The Guinness world record for the most people making sandwiches simultaneously is 550 and was achieved by CEB at its annual Global Service Day in Washington, D.C., USA.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the longest line of sandwiches; it is 2,667.13 m (8,750 ft 4.91 in) and was achieved by Kraft Foods Middle East and Africa FZE (United Arab Emirates) in Dubai Outlet Mall, Dubai (UAE).

  The 2,706 sandwiches were made with 1,200 pounds of Bacon Lovers Bacon Covered Club, one of the five varieties offered in the line.

  More than 6,000 slices of cheese were shipped in to New York City as well as more than 168 pounds of lettuce.
  The sandwiches were made by local Operation Homefront volunteers and military members from New York City and New Jersey.

  Eckrich Bacon Lovers Deli Meats then immediately donated more than half of the sandwiches to Operation Homefront. The remaining sandwiches were donated to City Harvest in New York City.

  The new record by Eckrich, part of the John Morrell Food Group, a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods, beat the previous Guinness world record of 1,660 and was a part of "Operation Inspiration," a campaign by Eckrich designed to honor, thank and support the military families who inspire their fellow Americans.

  Through the ongoing "Operation Inspiration" campaign, Eckrich will donate 5 cents for every purchase of specially marked products from May 1 through July 4, 2013, up to $250,000.

  It's the second year of Eckrich's partnership with Operation Homefront, but today's endeavor was one of its largest events to date.   

  The Bacon Lovers Deli Meats sandwiches were made on hero rolls donated by New York City business MRS Baking Distribution with lettuce donated by Fresh Express, a division of Chiquita.
  Cheese, provided by The Deli Source, was the other filling used to satisfy the required guidelines of two ingredients.

  Over the past year, through donations provided by Eckrich, Operation Homefront has met the needs of more than 100,000 families in all military branches of service.
