The Suburban Times reported today that two Metro Parks Tacoma attractions, Point Defiance Zoo and Northwest Trek, are collecting non-perishable food for the Emergency Food Network. In return, they’re offering a 50 percent discount on adult and children’s admissions through November 19.

To get the discount on admission, bring two or more non-perishable items to the entrance gate per person.
