MOUNTAINSIDE, N.J., July 8, 2014 (Korea Bizwire)–Over 350 kids and volunteers will demonstrate this week that you don’t need to be super hero in order to help with problems as widespread as hunger across our cities. Participants from Liquid Church’s Camp Rock program will work together on Friday, July 11 to break the Guinness World Record for most hunger relief packages assembled simultaneously. Liquid Church teams will work to break the record by packaging over 12,000 hunger relief kit items within a 3-minute time period.
Each hunger relief kit will include 10 different shelf-stable items and be packed in a carrying bag. The original record was established by employees of a Fortune 500 company in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 2012 with 555 packages. Liquid Church will attempt to break the original record by more than doubling the number to 1,200 packages.
All hunger relief kits will be donated to My Neighbor’s Pantry in Somerset, NJ, a local distribution hub for donated and federal food aid.
Liquid Church is working with Guinness World Records Limited of London to properly authenticate the record-breaking event on July 11 in Mountainside, NJ.
“We’re excited to encourage the world that whether you are a child or adult, you can make a difference in our communities. I love seeing our kids put their faith into action!” said Tim Lucas, lead pastor of Liquid Church, a Christian church with four locations across New Jersey.
