Dare to Care Food Drive & Admission Discount
Now through Feb. 28, 2023, the Louisville Zoo is teaming up with Kroger for our Wild Winter Days program.
Visitors who bring in one canned food item (per person) to donate to Dare to Care may purchase tickets at the Zoo windows for $9.75 per adult and $6.75 per child/ senior ticket.
The discount is available at the gate only; not valid for online purchases. The offer is not valid for special fee-based programs, for prepaid groups, field trips or with other discounts. No refunds will be provided for tickets prepaid in advanced or purchase online. Multiple cans are appreciated but only one discount per admission; additional cans do not provide additional discounts.
Dare to Care
In 2021, the Zoo has collected nearly 25,000 pounds of food thanks to the generosity of its guests. That is the weight of two African elephants, like Mikki.
Some of Dare to Care Food Bank’s most needed items are canned meats like tuna, as well as canned fruit, beans, peanut butter, soup, rice, cereal, fruit juice, pasta and canned vegetables. Please avoid glass containers.
