UK food bank smashes Guinness World Record
A food bank in England’s Milton Keynes has broken the Guinness World Record for longest line of food cans.
MK Food Bank smashed the record on October 16 as they lined-up more than 102,000 cans of food.
The food bank said on its website: “We are so proud of our amazing community here in Milton Keynes, it is incredible what we can achieve together and now we hold an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title of The Longest Line of Food Cans in the world to prove it!
We broke the record with 102,447 cans of food all around Campbell Park, Milton Keynes!
“This event will provide more than half of the canned food that MK Food Bank needs for an entire year, meaning we can continue to support thousands of families this winter.
“During the first half of 2023, demand increased by almost 40% on the same period as last year and the number of households receiving support doubled.
“Every single day, the Food Bank needs a minimum of 4,500 food items, £530 and 55 volunteer hours just to keep open.
“Thank you to every single supporter, student, organisation, team, business, and individuals who gave their Cans to support this fantastic effort and braved the cold to complete this epic line of food cans at Campbell Park!”
