Just happened to see this today and figured it would be perfect for cafemom.

Edited, posted a picture of the admission prices as well as other things you can pay for inside the zoo.



Edited to add the zoo is privately funded, I found this on their website

As the only non-profit, privately funded zoological park in the Texas Gulf Coast area, the Houston Zoo relies on guests, members, and donors to provide annual operating, program, and capital support. Donors play a crucial role in the success of the Houston Zoo’s education and animal care programs, global field projects, and local conservation initiatives.

I think anything to encourage low income families to do stuff outside the home is a great idea.

It doesn't bother me, I think it's nice that families who can't otherwise afford it will get to experience it.

No, why should they get benefits that the general population don't get.

I like the idea we did nothing as a kid because my parents couldn't afford to.

I remember when I was a kid, we used to save up kool aid packs to get in so yes, I think that's a good idea

If other's can afford it, why would they need to be given it for free?

I don't understand the correlation between SNAP/WIC and the zoo
