Food for Fines & Food for Thought

March 20, 2017 - April 28, 2017


Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan is once again teaming up with area libraries for the annual Food for Fines/Food for Thought campaign. Between March 20 and April 28 participating libraries will be accepting non-perishable food donations on behalf of Gleaners as they work together to help those in need in many communities throughout southeast Michigan. Some libraries will offer fine forgiveness in return for your donation! Check with your local library for details on participation.

Last year, libraries collected over 8,000 pounds of food!
