Pancake feed at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska

A pancake feed is an all-you-can-eat breakfast of pancakes popular in some United States locales including Minnesota and Nebraska.[1][2] A record pancake feed serving over 38,000 people occurred in Fargo, North Dakota on February 9, 2008.[3] American civic groups and amateur sports teams have traditionally used pancake feeds as fundraisers. In Seattle, they are associated with Swedish American and Norwegian American cultural societies and clubs.[4] The Kiwanis pancake feed in Lincoln, Nebraska has been held continuously since the 1950s.[5]
