Phoenix Public Library customers can pay overdue fees and help restock the pantries of Valley food banks during Phoenix Public Library’s annual “Food for Fines,” April 13-27.
During “Food for Fines,” 50 cents will be deducted from a customer’s library account fees for each non-perishable food item donated at any of the city’s 17 libraries. A maximum of $75 can be paid with donated food. Homemade food cannot be accepted.
Donated food will be distributed to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance and Desert Mission Food Bank. Last year the program collected more than 32,000 pounds of food.
