Disneyland Will Donate Excess Food From Coronavirus Closure

Disneyland Will Donate All Excess Food During Its Temporary Coronavirus Closure

ANAHEIM, CA - JANUARY 17: Crowds fill Main Street U.S.A. before the opening of Rise of the Resistance at In Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020.

On March 12, it was announced that Disneyland, Disney World, and other adventure parks will temporarily close their doors due to the coronavirus spread in the United States. As many travel plans were forced to be put on pause, and hotels offered guests time to change or cancel their visits, Disney still had to reckon with the large amount of food the parks produce, and it's committed to not letting it go to waste.

Just one day after the closure announcement, Disneyland Resort announced it will be donating the excess food from Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure Park to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. "While closely following food safety guidelines, excess inventory of dairy, fruit, vegetables, packaged goods and banquet meals is being donated to Second Harvest Food Bank, whose mission is to end hunger in Orange County," the press release stated.

Disney has worked with the organisation in the past, and together, they'll ensure that food does not go to waste. Donating to food banks and shelters is, in general, a great way for people to help their local communities during this challenging time.
