Nashville Library offers Food for Fines

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE ­- Nashville Public Library patrons can help feed the hungry while eliminating overdue fines.

During Food for Fines, Jan. 7-20 at all Nashville Public Library branch locations, patrons will be forgiven $1 in overdue fines for each can/package they donate of the following items: peanut butter, canned chicken or tuna, canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned soups, cereal and pasta.

Donations can be brought to any branch. All donations go to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.

Last year's drive resulted in 50,000 pounds of donated food.

Glass containers, open packages, repackaged or expired items will not be accepted. The program does not include replacement fees for lost or damaged items, collection agency fees, card replacement fees or future overdue fines.
