food for fines

Need to Feed Month

The St. Charles Parish Library will hold a Food for Fines event in October in conjunction with Need to Feed Month in St. Charles Parish. There are currently many families in St. Charles Parish who do not have enough food to feed their families—more than usual. Also, with so many people out of work or being home unexpectedly, many people who never though they would need assistance are reaching out.

From October 1 - 31, each nonperishable food item donated will clear up to $1 of overdue fines or fees associated with lost or damaged materials, excluding ILL fines and fees.

We cannot accept any handmade, expired, or damaged items.

You can still pay your fines or with cash, check, or credit card—and you can donate food even if you don’t have any fines or fees!

All food donations will be given to the Matthew 25:35 Ministries Food Pantry at the beginning of November to be given to people to use for Thanksgiving.
