The Titans may not be playing in the 2024 Super Bowl, but there’s still a way to show some team spirit for our community.

This year, the Nashville Zoo partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to host a Souper Bowl Food Drive leading up to the big game. Here’s how it works:

  • Drop off donations on Friday, Feb. 9 + Saturday, Feb.10 (9 a.m.- 4 p.m.) in the Entry Village.
  • In exchange, visitors who donate four or more eligible items will receive complimentary admission tickets — max two per household and redeemable through Tuesday, April 30.
  • All donations must be in a sealed container and no less than one month from the expiration date.

Did you know? The 2023 Souper Bowl Food Drive had 5,802 pounds of food donated and provided 4,835 meals throughout the Middle Tennessee community.
