Freida Pinto steals the show at Oscars, fed 800 people from the left over food
As the much awaited 89th Academy Awards were declared, winners as well as many others were centre of attraction at the Oscars. But, above all, Freida Pinto steals the show with her exemplary act!! Pinto assured that all the leftover food from this year’s Oscars ceremony did not go waste.
Pinto, an actress, activist and Global Citizen Ambassador has teamed up with Copia — a San Francisco-based company that uses technology to reduce waste and feed communities in need. Together they ensured that all those leftover appetizers, desserts and salmon dishes from the 89th Academy Awards after parties went to good use.
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, said Freida Pinto.
Jackie Kelly, one of the executive chefs in charge of Oscars prep and execution explained that the chef has been working with the charity organization, Chefs to End Hunger, for the past six years. Freida Pinto also shared an Instagram collage featuring a photograph of herself; she explained in the caption that over 800 people have been fed thus far, as a result of the Copia partnership.
