Walt Disney is creating a different kind of magic with food donations

Published April 7, 2020

Walt Disney theme parks have been closed since early March, but they are still delighting people. As reported by Good Morning America, after closing their doors for public and employee well being, they’ve been donating surplus food to large local food banks.

The Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, who partners with 550 feeding partners, has happily been receiving the fresh salads, greens and hot meals from Walt Disney World.

In California, the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is receiving the donations. “We are deeply grateful to Disneyland Resort for their generous donation of food,” said Harald Herrmann, CRO. “Donations of food, especially shelf-stable food, will be critical in the days and weeks ahead to serve those in our community impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.”

The food is now quickly being moved out to pantries and food distribution sites to help as many people as possible.
