Guinness Book of World Record Attempt: Casper, Wyoming, U.S., World’s Largest Potluck!

Find out more below! Want to participate?

Help fight poverty in Natrona County, Wyoming, Interfaith of Natrona County will be attempting to set the record for the World’s Largest Potluck, as a “Fun” fundraiser to increase assistance to our clients. We need 808 entries to beat the record and must be one dish per person. It can be an appetizer, salad, side dish, casserole, entrée, dessert or beverage.

On its Facebook Page Rev. Dee Lundberg said, “We are asking folks to limit their dishes to like one of those 8×8- ish aluminum pans with the cardboard cover, so that you don’t have to retrieve a dish later and we can work within the amount of table space we have. Safeway, Albertsons, etc deli items are permissible and maybe even desirable (keeps them sealed and safe).” For further consideration on food safety.

Join us at the Parkway Plaza, Sunday, February 26th from 1-5 PM. Cory & the Crew and Anastasias Fault will perform.

THE MOST IMPORTANT GUINNESS RULE IS:

We need ALL of the participants to be there all at once for a full 30 minutes.

  • Please plan to be there from at least 2:00-3:00. . . .You can come before and leave after. . .or. . . come then and stay around for fun, music and every kind of food you could imagine. Only those people (and dishes) who are there in a 30 min time frame (which will be sometime between 2:00 and 3:00) can be counted towards the record.
  • Unopened excess food, safe for redistribution, will be dispersed the day of the event, to local agencies serving those in need.
  • Since 1982, Interfaith has been helping those in need in Natrona County by providing emergency services such as shelter, food, clothing, prescriptions, case management, and skills for self sufficiency. Hunger and homelessness is on the rise here, as everywhere.
  • Any individuals of businesses who would like to help us by sponsoring, please let us know.
  • Everyone is welcome to come eat and enjoy the music whether or not they bring a dish, and we will rely on the generous free will donations of those who can afford it to make this event a success.

Please contact Rev Dee Lundberg if you would like to help.

    • You’re welcome – I’m looking forward to it! I’m sure with as much press as it’s going to get, it’ll be more than successful! I’m going to have to have my “Caboose” of a stroller to carry them and our stuff.
