The Nashville Zoo’s commissary was designed to meet the daily needs of animals, but also meet any future needs the Zoo may have in years down the road. The animal diet commissary houses all the coolers needed for produce items and freezer space for frozen meat products, as well as a grain room, three food preparation areas, dishwasher room, thawing room and a live food room.
