Disney theme parks are donating food to charity

Local food banks are to benefit from Disney's response to Covid-19.

Since the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak has challenged the way businesses operate from top to bottom, Disney has created a way to benefit the greater good of helping those most in need as concerns around the pandemic continue to grow.

As with many operations, Disney decided that it was beneficial for the purpose of improving public health to close its Disneyland and Disney World theme parks as restrictions enforced by governments consistently grow.

This created the firm a problem (as well as doubtless many others): what should be done with all of the food leftover from the theme parks' restaurants?

It would not be an unfair assumption in this society of constant waste to think that many companies would simply chuck everything into a colossal bin; however, Disney has chosen to be more sensible than that and will donate all excess food to community food banks so that it can be given to those in greatest need.

Disneyland's California park will be gifting all of its unused food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Meanwhile, food such as fresh salads and cooked meals from Disney World will be being donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.

Although Disney fans will obviously be disappointed with the temporary closure of the parks until at least the end of March, at least some good has come from a crisis that has otherwise created headlines filled with dread.

  • That's really great! I saw a post from some restaurants where they're selling their unused ingredients. They all should just be donating it.
