To show our love for the local community we are partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to host a food drive to support Tennessee residents. Nashville Zoo is asking for donations of shelf-stable food and the Zoo is offering a complimentary admission ticket when you donate four or more eligible food items (max of two tickets per household/donation).
Shelf-stable food includes items such as:
- Peanut butter
- Canned meat (chicken/tuna)
- Canned fruit and vegetables
- Soups and stews
The Zoo will collect donations from 9 am - 4 pm on Saturday, February 11 and Sunday, February 12. Zoo admission is not required to donate food. All donations must be in a sealed container and no less than 1 month from the expiration date. Complimentary Zoo tickets may be used during normal Zoo hours through the end of 2023 (blackout dates may apply).
Since 1978, Second Harvest Food Bank has followed its mission to provide food to people facing hunger and work to advance hunger solutions. They are one of 200 food banks affiliated with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief charity. Second Harvest distributes food and other resources to approximately 450 nonprofit Partner Agencies in 46 counties in Middle and West Tennessee.
