Temple University broke the Guinness World Record for the most peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made in an hour.

Over 1,500 students, faculty, alumni and locals gathered Sunday to make the 49,100 sandwiches that filled more than 93 boxes.

Temple’s feat shattered the previous record by almost 10,000 sandwiches. The previous record holder, Which Wich Superior Sandwiches, crafted 39,303 PB&J sandwiches back in June.

This Philadelphia university is no novice in the realm of PB&J making. Last year, the Temple Owls ran a PB&J-a-thon that yielded 478 sandwiches.

According to Temple University, the Owls themselves will not be the ones who will enjoy these tens of thousands of sandwiches. The university plans to donate the PB&J sandwiches and leftover ingredients to various organizations in Philadelphia, such as Champlost Homes, which will give the food to people on the streets, in soup kitchens and in churches.
