JBZoo Challenges Chef Jenna Arcidiacono

John Ball Zoo Challenges Chef Jenna Arcidiacono to cook a special meal for the Zoo’s chimpanzees

Ever wonder how we feed all 2,000+ animals in our care? Well, you’re in for an amazing behind the scenes look at how their diets are prepared and managed. We invited Chef Jenna Arcidiacono, from Amore Trattoria Italiana, to come along and learn about how we create our animal recipes and prepare diets. Also, we challenged her to create a special enrichment dish for our Chimpanzee troop! We are grateful for Chef Jenna’s support during WildLive Week. Please join her by making a gift to support the zoo here.

JBZ captured the day and challenge on video. Check it out. Feel free to share and tell the fun story of how John Ball Zoo challenged Chef Jenna to feed the chimpanzees!!
