"It's our goal to not only break the record, but also to supply over 200,000 meals to our local non-profit partners who do the good work every day of taking care of those who are hungry in our community." - Andre Angel

Four years and 1.3 million meals later, TangoTab, a Dallas based mobile app that feeds people in need when people dine at their partner restaurants is set to feed over 200,000 people in one day. TangoTab and more than 3,000 volunteers will come together to break the Guinness World Record for the Most People Making Sandwiches Simultaneously. The event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 27, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center (Dallas Convention Center). All of the sandwiches made will be donated to local North Texas food charities.
"We have been blessed to grow an idea right here in Dallas that puts the ability to fight hunger and to help local restaurants in the palm of your hand, via smart phone, in markets across the country," said Andre Angel, founder and CEO of TangoTab. "We are overwhelmed by the generosity of our family of users who choose to help the hungry while they are dining out and we are pleased that Dallas is leading the charge. TangoTab proves that when we work together, we can achieve something much bigger than we ever thought possible."
TangoTab originally broke this record on February 22, 2014, but on August 1, 2015 fast-food giant, Subway, broke TangoTab’s record with 1,481 participants. This put TangoTab on a mission to break the record once again. The event is FREE and everyone who participates becomes a Guinness World Record Holder.
“We are pleased to continue our partnership with TangoTab for this exciting, community-oriented event,” said Tim Dungan, President of Texas Land & Cattle, which is the title sponsor for the event. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime type of opportunity for DFW residents to join together and give back. Not only will people be able to check breaking a world record off of their bucket list, but also they are going to be able to help feed tens of thousands of residents in North Texas in a matter of hours; and that is a pretty incredible feat. We couldn’t be more proud to be part of an event that ties in so many aspects of our community.”
"It's our goal to not only break the record, but also to supply over 200,000 meals to our local non-profit partners who do the good work every day of taking care of those who are hungry in our community," continued Angel.
Former software executive Angel founded the Dallas-based company in 2012 as a way to address the significant challenge of hunger in our communities. Most envision hunger as a problem that occurs only in third world countries, but a significant battle against hunger is being waged right here at home, as one in six Americans will go to bed hungry tonight. Based in Dallas, Texas, TangoTab is available in Austin, San Diego, Dallas, Fort Worth, Oklahoma City, College Station and Waco. In 2016 TangoTab will be opening up to all markets across the U.S
