Alicia Richman of Granbury, Tex. has been declared the new Guinness World Record holder for “Most Breastmilk Donated,” CBS DFW reports. Between June 2011 and March 2012, The 28-year-old mother of one donated 11,115 ounces — or 694 pounds — of breastmilk to charity, according to Guinness. By volume, that’s about 87 gallons.

Richman told CBS that after she gave birth in March 2011, she began pumping and storing her milk, and quickly realized she was producing much more than her son could consume.

When two freezers were chock full of pumped milk, Richman contacted the Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas, an nonprofit that collects breast milk donations for critically ill and premature infants in need.

Her donations have fed “hundreds, and more likely, thousands of premature babies across the United States,” Amy Vickers, executive director of the milk bank, says in a press release.
