Woodland Park Zoo and its food service partner, Lancer Hospitality, are committed to offering a full-range of tasty, nutritious and affordable menu options and socially responsible practices including sustainability, food waste composting, recycling and responsible sourcing that will help lessen our impact on the environment.

We source local products for the freshest and finest ingredients to help reduce transportation costs and emissions. Our vendors are screened to ensure they are responsible partners. We look for earth-friendly products and actively participate in recycling programs.

At Woodland Park Zoo, we use real plates and silverware in the Rain Forest Food Pavilion to reduce our impact on the environment and use compostable cups, plates and utensils at our Pacific Blue Chowder House and zoo kiosk locations. All food waste is composted as part of the City of Seattle's Commercial Food Waste Recycling Program.
