Ladles of Love founder Danny Diliberto says he's still in disbelief after the charity group broke the Guinness World Record for the longest line of food cans on Sunday.
The NPO and scores of volunteers laid out 90,450 cans of food stretching over 6.7 kilometres at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
Huge congratulations to @LadlesofLove for breaking a world record by creating the longest ever line of food cans - a 6,7km line consisting of 90 450 cans! Each and every one will be donated to those in need. THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this awesome feat a reality. 🥫❤️ pic.twitter.com/EcLybLgU6i— V&A Food Market (@VandAFoodMarket) August 29, 2021
Diliberto says the line of cans was assembled in less than two hours, with attendees displaying positive energy and gees.
The cans will now be distributed weekly to more than 250 soup kitchens across Cape Town until they have been depleted.
