CRANFORD – The Cranford Teen Advisory Board is currently collecting canned food donations for those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but before cans make their way to people in need they will be part of a world record attempt.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, the board will attempt to build the world’s largest canned food pyramid in the Atrium at the Cranford Community Center on Walnut Avenue. The board has set a goal of collecting 20,000 cans of food. The planned pyramid will be 12 feet square at its base with 1,444 cans on the first level. When completed, it will be over 12 feet high and could weigh over 16,000 pounds.
Canned food items may be dropped off at the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue; Back to Nature Health Food, 13 Walnut Avenue; Advanced Physical Therapy, 210 North Avenue East; Dunkin’ Donuts, 333 North Avenue East; Dunkin’ Donuts, 6 South Avenue West #20; Edward Jones Financial Services, 10 North Union Avenue and Strength and Fitness Health Club, 570 East South Avenue.
After the record attempt, the food will be donated to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Cranford Family Care and the Salvation Army Plainfield Corps.
