Oscars is one of the most prestigious award ceremonies that celebrate global cinema. Being a global event, the finest actors and film technicians grace this event.
Every year, a grand meal is organized for everyone after the Oscars ceremony and in the end, a lot of food is usually wasted, but this time, the leftover food did not go to waste.
Freida Pinto, actress and activist, teamed up with Copia, a San Francisco-based company, to ensure all those leftover appetizers, desserts and salmon dishes went to good use. The leftover food was delivered to various Los Angeles communities in need.
So excited to be kicking off Oscar weekend with this fantastic initiative. This year #Copia and I team up with some of Oscar weekends biggest parties to recover excess food and deliver it to communities most in need in Los Angeles. #zerowaste #zerohunger Because this food is too good to be wasted. Thank you Women in Film for your incredible support 📷@hellomikeamico
Freida Pinto said,
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.
Frieda took to Instagram to post about this wonderful initiate and she explained how the initiative fed more than 800 hungry people with the leftover food.
The donations included food from the exquisite Governor’s Ball after party, a feast prepared for the last twenty-three years by Wolfgang Puck. It included everything from potatoes with caviar, braised short ribs, chicken pot pie, Oscar-shaped matzo crackers with smoked salmon, gold-dusted popcorn and more.
Way to go, Pinto!
