Donate Food and Receive Free Nashville Zoo Admission Tickets

Nashville Zoo is partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to host the 3rd annual Souper Bowl Food Drive on February 11 and 12. As an added incentive for supporting our local community, the Zoo is offering a complimentary admission ticket when you donate four or more eligible food items (max of two tickets per household/donation).

Guests are asked to bring shelf-stable food items including:

  • Peanut butter

  • Canned meat (chicken/tuna)

  • Canned fruit or vegetables

  • Soups and stews

  • Pasta

  • Cereal

The Zoo will be collecting donations from 9 am to 4 pm and Zoo admission is not required to donate. All donations must be in a sealed container and no less than one month from the expiration date. Complimentary Zoo tickets received from donating four or more items may be used during normal Zoo hours through the end of 2023.

Second Harvest Food Bank will distribute all food donations directly into the community. 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.
