2015 Food for Fines / Food for Thought
At Your Local Library!

Food For Fines / Thought Logo


The Food for Fines/Food for Thought campaign is a regional effort to offset the post-holiday decline in emergency food availability while increasing community engagement with local libraries. Hunger and charity are at the forefront of everyone’s minds during the holidays, but it is often forgotten that the need for emergency food assistance remains relatively constant year-round. This year, the six-week campaign will begin on March 23rd and run through May 1st. Please help us meet our goal to collect 10,000 pounds of food for those in need!


This spring, your local library and Gleaners Community Food Bank are partnering to alleviate hunger in southeast Michigan!


How can you help?
Bring in nonperishable food items to your participating, area library sometime between March 23rd and May 1st. Check to see if your library is offering fine forgiveness in return for your donation!

Check with your local library for participation dates and details. Fine forgiveness cap may apply.

Thank you to the 2015 Participants!
