As with other Disney properties around the world, Disneyland Paris closed its parks a few days ago in response to coronavirus related health guidelines. As other Disney parks have also done, Disneyland Paris also donated its surplus food to help feed local communities in this unprecedented time.

According to a statement from Disney Parks, the donation of 15 tons of food inventory went to local and national associations in France including Secours Populaire Français and Restaurants du Cœur.

There’s a lot of work involved in donating and transferring 15-tons of food, and the report thanks resort cast members who helped identify, collect, and redistribute products at risk of spoilage – including salads, fruit, dairy and more.

Disneyland Paris has long standing programs designed to reduce food waste and support those in need. It also recycles organic food waste in its kitchens and restaurants.
