Cast Member Pantry: Food Bank Created by Disney Cast Members for Cast Members

How AMAZING is this?! Cast Member Pantry was created in late July as a food bank for Cast Members struggling with the current furlough situation. Donations are being accepted as Cast Members lift up fellow Cast Members during this difficult time.


As shared on the Cast Member Pantry Facebook page: “Are you or a fellow cast member you know in need of groceries during this difficult time? Cast Member Pantry makes it quick and easy to receive free food essentials once a month per Cast Member. You’ll receive a reusable grocery bag filled with foods that are easily put together to make meals for 4, with breakfast and snack options as well. We take pride in putting food we all enjoy in our bags because we believe our Cast deserve the very best, and a little comfort too. How? Make an appointment today by emailing [email protected] and filling out the survey in the automatic reply. You’ll then receive an email with a day and time for pickup. We handout groceries every Saturday, but remember appointments are required so we know how many bags to have on hand. Please help us spread the word to fellow cast members that may not be on social media. We have volunteers that speak and respond to emails in Spanish and English. Questions? Reach out directly here on Facebook by sending us a message. We are here to serve and look forward to getting food in the hands of our fellow cast.”

Ashley Carter, Digital Journalist w/@mynews13, shared a Tweet this morning stating: “Thousands of Disney World cast members remain furloughed and many are struggling with basic needs like groceries. Consider donating to Cast Member Pantry, a food bank created by cast members for cast members. The group accepts monetary donations via Venmo (@castmemberpantry).”

Ashley goes on to share “The food bank is run by volunteer cast members, who have been helping their fellow co-workers in need.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
