Thank You For Helping Us Feed LA!” ‘Hero of the Oscars’ Donation

Jimmy Kimmel Oscars 2018

The host of the Oscars treated the 3,400 attendees to snacks to sustain them through Sunday night’s ceremony while making a donation to a food bank in Los Angeles for each “lunchbox” provided. Long awards ceremonies are notorious for leaving their attendees famished, but this year Jimmy Kimmel gave each person a box filled with crisps, sweets and a “This Bar Saves Lives” snack, made by a company that donates food aid to children around the world.

Each box also included a handwritten note from Kimmel, which read: “It wouldn’t be right to make you sit through this without snacks. Please don’t throw them at me. “P.S. – a donation to the L.A. regional food bank has been made for each box.

The food bank said: “Thank you for helping us feed LA!” ‘Hero of Oscars’ The boxes were decorated with scenes from films up for awards, including The Shape Of Water, Darkest Hour, Get Out and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The snack boxes were welcomed by the acting talent and journalists who attended the ceremony at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre. Chris Gardner of the Hollywood Reporter said: “This is not drill: [Jimmy Kimmel] is hero of [Oscars] & the show hasn’t even started yet.”

Earlier this year, British actress Imelda Staunton revealed she once took sandwiches to the 2004 Oscars when she was nominated for best actress in Vera Drake. Concerned about getting hungry during the long ceremony, she told The Graham Norton Show in February: “It was a long journey so I packed sandwiches and a bag full of snacks to have in the limo. “How very English of me to worry about getting hungry!
