Food 4 Fines

 

 

 

 

 

Known for many years as a strong community hub, Halton Hills Public Library is running a week-long project designed to give back to the community.

Food 4 Fines is a program in which people can have up to $20 forgiven from their overdue fines, simply by bringing in non-perishable food items to either the Acton or Georgetown Branches.

People without fines can still donate food and “pay it forward” for someone else who may have incurred fines but forgot to bring in their food donation.

Why Food 4 Fines?

We wanted a project that would make a significant difference right here in our town. With stores of food at an all-time low, it is our honour to help the essential work done by area food banks. October is a time of thankfulness, and a perfect occasion to raise awareness that not everyone is lucky enough to afford food for their families.

You can find lots of great information on the websites for Acton Food Share and Georgetown Bread Basket.
