Curving around puddles, posts, and pillars, up curbstones and crossing driveways and bridges, a 6.7km trail of tinned food, starting and ending at the V&A Waterfront’s Nobel Square, broke a world record at the weekend..
Snow-covered peaks and low temperatures on Sunday August 29 did not deter volunteers from taking part in the Guinness World Record attempt for the longest line of tinned food.
The event was organised by Ladles of Love, a non-profit organisation that feeds the hungry.
The line of more than 90 450 cans beat the previous Canadian record: a 3.28km trail of 44 966 cans.
The event had been planned for Mandela Day but was delayed due to a third wave of Covid-19 infections. According to Ladles of Love founder Danny Diliberto, this is their most ambitious fund-raiser to date.
