To curb the spread of the COVID-19, which is confirmed to be transmitted by air, social distancing has been widely advised. It is almost a given that entertainment parks that regularly throng with people have to shut down.
This is why, last week, Disney announced that they were closing all their amusement parks. Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure park want to avoid losing out on all fronts, by donating their excess food to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
Disneyland collectively announced this via their official website. A similar one from Walt Disney followed the heartwarming news.
Similarly, they issued a public statement that excess foods like "fresh salads, greens, and expertly cooked hot items" in their inventory will be given to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
Reports share that this is not the first time Disney will be donating food to these food banks. Whenever they had excessive food that was unserved, they would give to the food banks to help alleviate hunger in the local communities.
Now, if that's not good news, we don't know what is!
At this time, when COVID-19 has claimed so many lives and continues to pose a threat to many others, there is nothing more rewarding than observing human characteristics like providing for the less-privileged.
Kudos to Disney!
