Disneyland resort won't let their food go to waste when they shut their gates to limit spread of the coronavirus.


The Disneyland Resort will be donating excess food during it's closure to a food bank to reduce waste.

The park made the announcement from the Disney parks blog, saying it is committed to reducing food waste. Excess inventory of dairy, fruit, vegetables, packaged goods and banquet meals will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank in Irvine, California.

Disneyland announced Thursday it would be shutting its gates to avoid further spread of the coronavirus. Disney World, Disney's Florida park, soon after announced it would do the same.

"In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of our theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Paris Resort, beginning at the close of business on Sunday, March 15, through the end of the month," a Disney spokesperson said in a statement.
