Excess Food Being Donated by Disneyland Resort During Coronavirus Closure

Yesterday Disney Parks announced that they would be closing through the end of the month due to the coronavirus outbreak. This includes the Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Disneyland Paris Resorts. As the Disneyland Resort prepares to shut its gate tonight for several weeks, it announced that the excess food it has would be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.

The Disneyland Resort will be donating the excess inventory of dairy, fruit, vegetables, packaged goods and banquet meals to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. This will be done taking all necessary safety and precautionary steps along with food safety guidelines. Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is striving to end hunger in Orange County.

Since 2004, the Disneyland Resort has operated a food donation program. This program utilizes prepared, unserved food from select locations and shares it with those in need in the local community. This is a program that is in addition to the food scraps program at the Disneyland Resort. Together they work to minimize food waste at the Disneyland Resort and also help have a better environmental impact.

In 2019, the Disneyland Resort donated over 20,000 meals to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. Disney VoluntEARS are also regular volunteers there as well.  More information about Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County can be found at feedoc.org.
