As restaurants, event spaces, and other businesses with food service options experience restrictions and closures due to COVID-19, many end up with surplus food in their inventory. Rather than discard it, businesses and institutions can connect with local food rescue organizations. WWLP recently included another unique outlet for food donation – the Zoo in Forest Park. For restaurants, food service providers, and other entities with surplus food, the zoo is welcoming donations of meats, produce, and other food to feed their animals.
