Through this time of global crisis due to the Coronavirus, Disneyland Paris is donating 15 tons of food in order to help their local communities.
An official statement on the Disney Parks blog by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director said that “this is just one example of Disneyland Paris’ longstanding commitment to reduce food waste and support those in need.”
You can read the full statement by Smith below:
“With local communities more in need than ever during this unprecedented time, Disneyland Paris recently donated 15 tons of surplus food inventory to local and national associations in France such as Secours Populaire Français and Restaurants du Cœur, following the important decision to close Disneyland Paris through the end of the month.”
“The large-scale donation operation was accomplished thanks to resort cast members who were mobilized to identify, collect and redistribute fresh products – including salads, fruit, dairy and more – as quickly as possible.”
“This is just one example of Disneyland Paris’ longstanding commitment to reduce food waste and support those in need. We take steps throughout the year to raise awareness and engage our guests and cast members, including placing information signs in buffet restaurants and collecting organic food waste from meal preparation in all of our restaurants.”
