Two-thousand volunteers  packed 479,000 meals in less than one hour Saturday to feed children in Haiti, while setting a Guinness World Record. The previous record was just more than 315,000.

The event was sponsored by Numana Inc., Volunteer Kansas and The Downtown Rotary Club of Wichita. 

“We’re going to keep going until they tell us to stop,” said Lena Young, a volunteer, as she assembled the meals.

Guinness sent an adviser to Wichita to verify the process and witness the record being set.
