Students Help Build World-Record Sandwich

Volunteers assemble 102-foot wrap Adding a layer of lettuce Culinary arts and systems student Crystal Butler-Peterson has fun setting a record Toothpicks hold it all in place Radio reporter watches Chef Philip Gajda's official measurementStudents from Penn College’s School of Hospitality joined the world record-breaking effort at the Victoria House in Lewisburg over the weekend, where they helped owner Chef Philip Gajda and his family, along with volunteers from the Boy Scouts, Union-Snyder Habitat for Humanity and the community to build the world’s longest sandwich wrap. The result was a 102-foot turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese wrap. “The previous record was 30 feet, so this should secure the one prepared at the Victoria House for a while,” said Chef Mary G. Trometter, assistant professor of hospitality management/culinary arts (who also took these photos). Pieces of the wrap were sold to benefit Union-Snyder Habitat for Humanity.
