Food For Fines

 

The Food for Fines Drive is to be conducted at the library for the sixth year in a row. The St John’s library will waive over-due book fees in exchange for canned goods.

 The program runs from Nov.1 until Dec. 19. All non-perishable food items are accepted at the donation box located in the lobby of St. Augustine Hall.

Over the last five years, Food for Fines has collected and donated 6,133 food items to families in need. This year, the collected food at the Queens Campus will go to Our Saviour Lutheran Food Pantry, located nearby in Jamaica. The Staten Island Campus, also participating in Food for Fines, will donate their collected food to Project Hospitality.

Our Saviour Lutheran Food Pantry gives out 85 bags of food or more per week to families in need. This number increases during the holiday season.

Foods that are needed the most are canned meats/fish, canned soups and vegetables, pasta, and pasta sauce.

Fines for overdue books are five dollars. One can of food is required per fine.
