Walt Disney World Resort Donating Excess Food to Second Harvest Food Bank During Temporary Closure

Disney has long-supported charitable organizations in their parks’ communities, donating to causes like Second Harvest among others. And this is set to continue during the temporary closure of Walt Disney World in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. And none too soon, with thousands of workers across the Orlando area displaced, and many living paycheck-to-paycheck.

Walt Disney World Resort will donate excess food inventory like fresh salads, greens and expertly cooked hot items to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, as part of the ongoing Disney Harvest program. Launched in 1991, Disney Harvest collects excess and unserved food from locations throughout Walt Disney World, delivering it to feeding programs across Central Florida.

The Walt Disney World Resort donates over 823,000 pounds of prepared but unserved food to Second Harvest annually. These meals are distributed to over 40 Orlando-area nonprofits, and helped provide over one million meals last year, according to Disney.
