After this year’s Academy Awards, stars partied at the Oscars Governors Ball, with food catered by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck. The menu was amazingly extensive. But there is something else for which this oscar is worth remembering. This year, Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto made sure leftover food from several of the Oscars weekend parties was redistributed to hungry Los Angeles residents.
Freida worked with San Francisco-based food recovery technology company Copia to ensure no party food was wasted.
“Our aim is to ensure that no one goes hungry in our film and TV town of Los Angeles by recovering leftover foods from all of our big parties and events.”
According to Freida’s Instagram, Copia managed to feed over 800 people with the leftover food from all the Oscars weekend parties.”Wastage isn’t glamorous, feeding people is,” Freida wrote on Instagram.
In order to stop food from being wasted at the party, Freida and Copia will now recover the excess food and deliver it to communities most in need in Los Angeles. With a huge chunk of the world population been hit by poverty and starvation, this is a champion cause for sure.
Freida deserves huge applause for bringing this to the forefront. She took to Instagram to announce the great news.
