Everyone Celebrates National Sandwich Day 2017

National Sandwich Day is our favorite day of the year. It’s also the birthday of Sandwich America®. Not only do we enjoy and celebrate sandwiches, but today is the day many others jump in on the action. We are so lucky – and proud – to play a role in this great event. In fact, over 300 million sandwiches are eaten daily…on National Sandwich Day 2017 we bet there are a few more eaten!

Each year it seems more and more people honor the day, and that’s true of National Sandwich Day 2017 for sure! Some of these celebrations are funny, some strange, but all are delicious and deserving of being highlighted (well, most anyway).

To start off, we have recipes for a day of sandwich meals beginning with a great sandwich recipe for Breakfast, a meatloaf sandwich for lunch and our twist on the classic French Dip – our Aussie Dip Sandwich made with roasted Australian lamb for dinner.

We also found time to put together our favorite Fun Facts about Sandwiches and created a quick video to show just how much fun people have with sandwiches.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Casual to Fancy.

Young to Old.

All Races, Colors and Creeds.

Sandwiches are not only our favorite (edible) handhelds, enjoying them is as American as it gets.

And, we’ll share some of the other excitement from National Sandwich Day 2017 here throughout the day. So, check back often – or follow us on social media – to keep up to date. We’d also love it if you’d take just a moment to sign up for our newsletter where we feature our monthly Sandwich Night in America, tales from The Great American Sandwich Trail and other fun sandwich features.

A Simple Sandwich, Thousands of Heros

Our friends at One Sandwich at a Time and One Heart for Women and Children partnered with the Hyatt Grand Central in New York to make sandwiches for those in need in recognition of National Sandwich Day!

Together with volunteers and their board, One Sandwich at a Time constructs peanut butter & jelly and ham & cheese sandwiches, bagging them up and delivering them to the areas in which they are most needed – including food pantries, homeless shelters and food distribution centers serving victims of natural disasters, like Hurricane Sandy. Please consider supporting their good cause.
