One hundred volunteers from the UJA-Federation of New York broke the Guinness World Record for most sandwiches made for the needy in one hour.

A group of Long Island parents and children made 1,660 sandwiches on Sunday at Temple Beth Sholom in Roslyn Heights, breaking the mark of 1,500. The sandwiches and other food, made on the federation’s Mitzvah Day, were donated to the Queens Jewish Community Council for needy families.

Guinness requires that each sandwich have two components between two slices of bread. The sandwiches were made from soy butter and jelly to ensure that the recipients would have no allergy problems, according to an event spokeswoman.

At least another 100 volunteers wrapped the sandwiches for distribution and attached cards and decorations.

A Guinness representative was on hand to certify the results.
