Cast Member Food Pantry: Making Magic
The Cast Member Pantry Helps Laid Off Workers…
Here’s a feel-good story on a not-so-feel-good kinda night.
One Disney Cast Member is looking out for fellow employees laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Emily Lartigue of Florida, reached out to the community on behalf of her compatriots at WDW.
A Disney employee is working her magic to help feed furloughed colleagues.
Emily Lartigue, 28, is inviting out-of-work cast members to be her guest at a food pantry she started up in Windermere, Fla., to help provide meals amid Disney layoffs during the pandemic.
“Our mission is ‘no cast member goes hungry.’ It’s a big undertaking, especially now, with the news of layoffs and the unknown with how long this is going to last,” Lartigue told FOX News Friday.
About The Cast Member Pantry
Back in March, the group’s Facebook page proclaimed:
FRIENDS! Help me spread the word!!!
Along with some fellow cast members we have created the CM Pantry to help out. In this time of uncertainty when many cast depend on tips and over time, humanity wins.
If you are interested in donating food as well, please message me. We are taking any unopened food…
Thank you, friends. Stay safe!
A Nice Video
And the wonderful story keeps going.

Lartigue and her team have distributed 8,000 bags of food since March. Each is given out every Saturday and former cast members can register via a Survey Monkey link with their Disney ID to get access to pantry items… Those who wish to donate can do so via the group’s Venmo account @castmemberpantry.
