Tigard Public Library Food for Fines, March 20-26

Take $1 off your fines for each non-perishable food item you donate during the Tigard Library’s Food for Fines drive from Sunday, March 20, through Saturday, March 26, 2016. You can clear up to $10 of fines from your account.

Tigard Library will donate the food to the St. Vincent DePaul food pantry in Tigard, which will distribute it to local families in need. March is an important month for food pantries because their inventory is often depleted.

Acceptable donations include:
  • Canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon etc.)
  • Canned and boxed meals (chili, soup, macaroni and cheese etc.)
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta, rice and cereal
  • Canned fruits
  • 100% fruit juices
  • Baby food
Tigard Library cannot accept homemade, perishable, open or unlabeled items, rusty cans or items past their expiration date.

Food for Fines applies only to fines, not other library charges. Reduce your library fines and take a bite out of hunger!
