Need to Feed Month

The St. Charles Parish Library is holding a food drive in April in conjunction with Need to Feed Month in St. Charles Parish. Any item donated will clear $1 in fees on your account.

We will donate the collected food items to the Matthew 25:35 Ministries Food Pantry. Organizers have told us that there are many families in St. Charles Parish who do not have enough food to feed their families, and they continue to see an increased interest in their food distribution events.

During Need To Feed Month (April 1-30):

  • We will accept a food donation in lieu of money owed for most types of fees.
  • Each food item donated will clear up to $1 of fees associated with lost materials, damaged materials, and/or lost card fees.
  • The donation will clear fees for lost or damaged materials or any accrued fees.
  • The donation will clear fees for lost cards.
  • The donation CANNOT be used to clear fees for lost or damaged ILL books.
  • We cannot accept any handmade/home-canned, damaged, or expired items.
  • You can still pay with credit cards or cash for fees instead of donating food.
  • You do not have to have fines or fees to donate food!
