World’s Biggest Bowl of Oatmeal at Ag in the City!

Since you asked,  yes,  we did it!

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada along with Agriculture in the Classroom-Manitoba shattered the Guinness World Record for the BIGGEST BOWL of OATMEAL!

People crowded into the Forks to witness the world's biggest bowl of oatmeal.

Using a 400 litre pot and over a hundred pounds of grown oats,  volunteers working with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Dr. Nancy Ames and Agriculture in the Classroom – Manitoba whipped up one terrific bowl of oatmeal!

This pot will help us break the world record for Biggest Bowl of Oatmeal!

On Friday morning at Agriculture in the City 327.5 kilograms of oatmeal were prepared,  close to double the old record of 171.9 kilograms set in Salford,  United Kingdom in 2009.

The oatmeal was served to about eighty highschool students attending Agriculture in the Classroom’s Made in Manitoba Breakfast as well as a few hundred members of the general public.

Leftover oatmeal was donated to Siloam Mission and Agape Table.

Evidence of the record attempt was carefully compiled and will be submitted to Guinness World Records for authentication.
