Food for Fines to benefit Cupboard

From March 18 through March 31, South Portland Public Library is sponsoring Food for Fines, a library fines amnesty program to benefit the South Portland Food Cupboard. During this period, library users may bring in donations of food and other items and the library will excuse any late fees on their library account. Donations may be brought to the Main or Branch libraries during regular library hours.

All donations will be passed on to the South Portland Food Cupboard, an all volunteer, ecumenical food pantry dedicated to alleviating hunger by providing supplemental food to the needy of South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough, and surrounding communities. The South Portland Food Cupboard serves more than 700 people a month.
