Thanks to actress Freida Pinto, large quantities of food left over after the Oscars ceremony did not go waste.

According to Mashable, the Slumdog Millionaire actress along with San Francisco-based non-profit organisation Copia took over the responsibility of distributing the excess food from the Oscars party to various Los Angeles communities in need of food.

However, this is not the first time that such a good deed has been done. 

Salon reports that for the past 23 years, Wolfgang Puck prepares the food for the Governor's Ball, the Oscars ceremony and also for its after-party. Chefs to End Hunger, another non-profit organisation in partnership with Puck for the past six years, distributes the excess food from Oscars to restaurants or shelter homes. 

This year, the menu at the Governor's Ball included chicken pot pie, potatoes with caviar, Oscar-shaped matzo crackers, gold-dusted popcorn and a lot more.
