World Sandwich Day is November 3rd

By Lindsey Johnson

Americans eat approximately 300 million sandwiches daily, averaging one per person. From grilled cheese to gourmet, sandwiches are a staple of American cuisine. Celebrate your favorite sandwich on November 3rd for World Sandwich Day!


*The largest sandwich on record was created by Wild Woody’s Chill and Grill in Roseville, Michigan in 2005. It weighed 5,440 pounds and contained 3,568 pounds of bread, 1,032 pounds of corned beef, 530 pounds of lettuce, 260 pounds of cheese and 150 pounds of mustard. This record-breaking sandwich was 17.5 inches thick and 12 feet long by 12 feet wide. That’s a lot of sandwich! (Click link to see photo!)

*The sandwich was named after John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, in the 1700’s. He asked his servant to put meat between two slices of bread so he could eat on the go.

*The average American will have eaten approximately 1,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches by the time they graduate high school.

*The San Diego Jewish Academy set a record of making 868 sandwiches in 3 minutes to feed the people experiencing homelessness in their community.
