SeaWorld San Antonio has made a huge donation to the San Antonio Food Bank in response to the Coronavirus Outbreak.

OnWednesday, the theme park donated a surplus of over 6,000 pounds of food. Thats about as much as 1 African Forest Elephant or 18.5 Shaquille O’Neal’s.

The food was originally intended for guests and employees over spring break, which was picked up by the San Antonio Food Bank and be used to feed members of the community.

The food filled two box trucks and consisted of fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products and an assortment of beverages.

Currently, SeaWorld is temporarily closed due to the coronavirus, but say they are continuing to provide round the clock care for its animals.
