Closed by coronavirus, Disney will avoid waste and will donate food to popular restaurants in Florida

The new coronavirus generated a pandemic and managed to paralyze the world. Attractions and places that we would never have imagined seeing emptied are now closed to try to control the epidemic.

One of the mega companies that was forced to close was Disney. All parks and stores in the chain are closed until the end of March. Remembering that the date may be changed if the epidemic continues.

However, Disney decided to help the crisis and fight its own waste, and announced that it will donate all excess food from the shutdown to local food banks.

According to a statement, there are tons of “fresh salads, vegetables, and hot items prepared by experts”. In Florida, donations will go to the Second Harvest Food Bank. The startup that works as a food bank, already has a partnership with the park and receives 20 thousand meals donated by Disney annually.

“Second Harvest Food Bank is known for its vital work in fighting hunger in Central Florida, and we know the important role we play in helping to bring meaningful solutions to our community in times of great need,” said Tajiana Ancora-Brown, director of external affairs for Walt Disney World Resort.
