Green Giant, broke the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title on Nov. 20 creating the largest serving of green bean casserole that weighed in at 1,009 pounds. The original serving record of 637 pounds was set by the Green Giant brand in 2017 to mark the inaugural year of the Green Giant float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The entirety of the record-breaking green bean casserole will be served to 3,000 older New Yorkers through Citymeals on Wheels, a local nonprofit that prepares and delivers over 2 million weekend, holiday and emergency meals each year for the city’s homebound elderly.

Below are fast facts about the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title-attempt:

• An estimated 125,000 individual Green Giant Cut Green Beans were used in the casserole.

• The casserole was comprised of 1,069 cans of Green Giant Cut Green Beans, 485 cans of mushroom soup, 65 quarts of milk and 95 pounds of French fried onions.

• It took a team of ten chefs from Stella 34 Trattoria in Macy’s Herald Square eight hours to prep and cook the 1,009-pound serving. The average bake time for a typical serving of green bean casserole is 25 minutes.

• The casserole will feed 3,000 people at senior centers across New York City.

• According to a recent Suzy survey* conducted by Green Giant, more than two thirds (68%) of Americans say they plan to serve green bean casserole at Thanksgiving dinner.

“Green bean casserole is an iconic Thanksgiving dish, and true to form for Green Giant, we wanted to do something giant to bring attention to the importance of giving back to the community this season,” said Jordan Greenberg, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, B&G Foods. “We are thrilled to celebrate our annual appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® by breaking our own GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest serving of green bean casserole which will feed 3,000 older New Yorkers.”
