Disneyland Paris has announced it has donated 15 tonnes of food to help local communities suffering in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The theme park has already donated 15 tonnes of excess food inventory to associations in France, locally and nationally, to provide help to communities in need.

Cast members at the theme park have been identifying, collecting and redistributing fresh produce, including dairy products, fruit and salad.

The theme park has long been committed to reducing food waste and helping people in need, including collecting organic food waste from the preparation of meals in all of the park’s restaurants.

Disneyland Paris has temporarily closed because of the coronavirus crisis.

Other theme parks around the world are donating food to organisations. In the United States, Disneyland is donating surplus food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County and Walt Disney World is giving excess food to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
