News 9 and the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden are partnering with the Regional Food Bank to fight childhood hunger in Oklahoma. Zoo guests bringing at least one food item from the list below will receive half off admission (a $5.50 value for adults; $4 value for kids and seniors) this holiday weekend, January 13 through 15. Each ticket requires at least one food item for discount. Food items will be accepted at the Zoo’s ticket windows. No other discounts or promotions may be combined with this offer. Regular Zoo hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. apply.
- Most needed items include: canned meats, meat-based soups, canned fruits, canned vegetables, peanut butter and granola bars.
- Oklahoma is one of the hungriest states in the nation, where one in four children has inconsistent access to healthy food.
- Donations benefit the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s Food for Kids School Pantry Program. The School Pantry Program provides chronically hungry middle and high school students with food to sustain them after school and over the weekends. Last school year, 5,770 chronically hungry students attending 167 schools received weekly groceries through this crucial program.
