Library’s Food for Fines to Support Local Food Pantry
Join the Brown County Library in its 2019 “Food for Fines” program. This program allows library cardholders who donate food items to clear overdue fines from their library account and also help stock the shelves at Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay.
All Brown County Library cardholders can donate food items from April 29 through May 5 at any library location.
Cardholders will receive a $1 voucher to reduce their overdue fines for every qualifying food donated. Fines and fees, including those from lost or damaged materials, are not included. There is a limit of 25 vouchers per cardholder or $25 per library account. Everyone is welcome to donate even if they do not have any overdue fines.

All collected food items will be donated to Paul’s Pantry in Green Bay who serves hungry people in the community who are unable to purchase enough food for their family as a result of their meager or no income. Its goal is to provide a family with enough food every week, for as long as needed, so that they may use their food dollars for shelter, utilities and other necessities, and avoid becoming homeless.
