According to CNN, citizens in Collinsville, IL have partnered with the H.J. Heinz Co. to fill an 8-foot-tall, 4-foot-wide plastic pouch with 1,500 pounds of the condiment for a school fundraiser.
“That’s a lot of ketchup,” said Tracey Parsons, a Heinz spokeswoman.
The company donated 4,000 glass bottles of the condiment for people to buy for $1 and pour into the packet. Proceeds will go to the Collinsville Christian Academy, which was damaged by a fire this week.
The feat is being submitted to Guinness World Records.
