Peanut butter, jam, chocolate spread, and even polony, were packed into sandwiches which were distributed to charities, hospitals, and the homeless around the city. A total of 4 356 sandwiches were made and individually packaged for distribution, with 7 886 cups of soup collected and handed out with the sandwiches in cups decorated by volunteers as young as two years old.
