Break a Guinness World Record. We did it.

When the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) hosted their 17th World Conference at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, they wanted to make history. Through the “Give a Can… Give a Damn!” community outreach campaign, IUFoST raised awareness for global food issues.

And, with the help of student volunteers led by the McGill Food Association, collected 44,966 non-perishable food cans to create a 2.04-mile-long chain for Moisson Montréal (Montréal’s largest food bank), setting a new Guinness World Record.

I was proud to see my city come together to accomplish something that not only got the world talking about global food issues, but actually helped those in need through a massive donation to Moisson Montréal.
- Raymond Larivée, President and CEO, Palais des congrès de Montréal
