Feed the hungry and get rid of your library fines.

Pay down your library fines by donating cash or non-perishable food items. All donations will go to the Food Pantry Network of Licking County. For every $1 you donate, we will waive $3 of your library fines. For every non-perishable food item, we will waive $2 of your library fines. In 2015, the member agencies of the Food Pantry Network of Licking County served 1,435,743 meals to 331,996 individuals. Approximately 35% of the recipients are children and infants.

Cash is extremely helpful because the food pantry can buy in bulk. If you donate food, here are some suggested items:

Meals in a can (soup, stew, chili)
Tuna or canned chicken
Peanut butter
Canned foods with pop-top lids
Canned fruit in its own juice or water
Low-sodium canned vegetables
Olive or canola oil
Spices
Low-sugar whole grain cereals
Healthy snacks (packs of granola bars, nuts, dried fruit)
