In-need communities didn't go hungry because of Freida Pinto and the Oscars


Remember when candy parachuted from the ceiling at this year's Oscars? It's hard to believe all the celebrities were able to consume the copious amount of sugar.

Knowing that a lot of food tends to go to waste after glamorous award shows, "Slumdog Millionaire" actress and Global Citizen Ambassador Freida Pinto teamed up with a San Francisco-based company known as Copia that uses technology to reduce food waste and feed undernourished communities in Los Angeles, she said on her Instagram.


Extravagant food donations from the Governor's Ball after party included potatoes with caviar, braised short ribs, chicken pot pie, Oscar-shaped matzo crackers with smoked salmon, and even gold-dusted popcorn. 

"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," Pino told Vanity Fair in February.

There was enough food to also help support the LA LGBT Center.
