The Baton Rouge Zoo is working with The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank again in hopes of matching or exceeding the 4,000 pounds of food that was collected in 2019.

Mike Manning, President and CEO of the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank said, “We truly appreciate the Zoo’s willingness to bring the joy of food to tables in the Baton Rouge area while sharing the joyful holiday experience of ZooLights.”

This year’s event is presented by Children’s Hospital New Orleans.

“Children’s Hospital New Orleans is proud to present the 2020 BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo ZooLights,” said John R. Nickens IV, President and CEO of Children’s Hospital New Orleans. “It is our privilege to provide specialized pediatric healthcare for the children and families of Baton Rouge year-round. This holiday season we’re excited to help bring families together to celebrate the holidays, with a safe and fun ZooLights experience.”

If you do bring a non-perishable food item, you can get half off the regular admission price.

Except for December 24 and 25, the gates will be open from 5:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. and close at 9pm.
