LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Lexington Parking Authority announced Friday that its Food for Fines canned food drive is coming back this month.
The food drive will run from Monday, November 19 through Friday, December 14.
The nationally-recognized program allows people who bring in 10 cans of food to receive $15 off any LEXPARK or Lexington Police parking ticket.
Those with multiple tickets may bring in as many cans as they wish and receive $15 credit for every set of 10 cans.
Past due tickets are eligible.
During the previous four years LEXPARK says it has collected 32,200 cans of food, over 16 tons in total.
All canned food donations received by LEXPARK will be donated to God’s Pantry Food Bank. Canned vegetables which are at least 14-15 oz. large and protein items such as canned meat, beans or peanut butter are suggested.
