Oscar 2017: To wear the best clothes and to walk on the red carpet are the only things celebrity do at Oscar Award? This time, once again, a Bollywood actress made us proud of his positive and effective gesture towards needy people. While in the city, she tied up with Chicago-based NGO Copia to ensure the surplus food from after party should be distributed among LA’s foodless people.
No matter of doubt that every year a huge amount of food is wasted or uneaten at Oscar which was not utilised as it should be. Governor Ball’s Party chef Wolfgang Puck made a lavish meal including golden baked potatoes with caviar, gold-dusted popcorn, and OScar-shaped matzo crackers with smoked salmon, among the delicacies. There were over 3,000 plates of fancy food and so it might not be a surprise that there was a humongous amount of leftover food as well.
With the aim of avoiding wastage of food as well as using this opportunity to give to the society, Freida teamed up with Copia. While in a conversation with Vanity Fair, she 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.”
There might be many who become prominent and influential but there are only a few who thinks something different for the cause of others. It is heartening to see Freida, who has achieved such stardom, still looking out for people less fortunate than herself.
