Kitchen and Food Preparation

The Playhouse is equipped with a complete kitchen, including stainless steel counters and sinks, a walk-in refrigerator and freezer, stove-top and microwave.  There is a large window between the kitchen and the chimp area of the Playhouse so the chimps can watch volunteers prepare food and the volunteers can watch the chimps while they cook!  The sanctuary receives generous weekly donations of fresh fruits and vegetables, when available, from local providers.  The chimps receive three balanced meals of produce per day, in addition to nutritional biscuits and a bedtime snack.
