|Clean out your cupboards and lower your library fines during Phoenix Public Library’s annual “Food for Fines” program. Kicking off Saturday, April 7th and running through Saturday, April 21st, all 17 Phoenix Public Library locations are collecting food that will support St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance and Dessert Mission Food Bank.|
During “Food for Fines”, you receive a 50-cent credit per canned or non-perishable food toward your library fines. The maximum total of fines that can be paid down with donated food is $75, and can also be applied to lost items. Food that is expired, perishable, homemade or require refrigeration will not be accepted.
In past years, the program has collected as much as 70,000 pounds of food for Arizona’s hungry – so come visit your Phoenix Public Library and help restock the pantries of Valley food banks Saturday, April 7th through Saturday, April 21st!
