Remember When East Texas Food Bank Attempted to Set a World Record?
Wednesday, February 22, 2017 the East Texas Food Bank, with the help of Brookshires, took a chance at setting the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest canned food pyramid. Many volunteers came in to work shifts to help build the pyramid.
Brookshires donated 36,000 cans of food for the pyramid. The base of pyramid is about 300 square feet with a height of about twelve feet. After the pyramid was disassembled, all of the canned food was given to families in need. Those 36,000 cans of food can feed 30,000 families.
Word was never given if this world record attempt became official but it was fun to see.
The East Texas Food Bank is offering assistance to families during the Coronavirus pandemic. If you are in need of assistance, visit easttexasfoodbank.org or call 903-597-3663.
