HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Food left over from the post-Oscar Governors Ball in Hollywood will be distributed to the homeless, organizers of the event say.
Just as the posh party comes to a close, refrigerated trucks from Angel Harvest, a non-profit agency that provides food to those in need in the Los Angeles-area, will arrive to pick up remaining victuals for immediate distribution to the homeless.
For the ninth straight year, Angel Harvest will deliver the leftovers to social service agencies providing emergency food to the city's hungry.
The food will be the same Wolfgang Puck cuisine enjoyed by those Hollywood stars who attended the ball. The meals will be served for lunch and dinner the following day at local Los Angeles shelters.
The food is divided among local agencies, depending on each organization's ability to handle that type of food. For example, salads and entrees may go to some shelters while desserts, entrees and appetizers to to others.
The party will be held in the Governors Ballroom on the top level of the Hollywood and Highland complex immediately following the 76th Annual Academy Awards presentation on Feb. 29.
