This is a great opportunity to help our local community during the 18th annual citywide effort to restock area food pantries. Canned and other nonperishable food items can be dropped off at various locations throughout town, including local grocery stores, public library branches, City Hall, and other locations. The food will then be collected, sorted and distributed among agencies serving the less fortunate, including the Salvation Army, the Opportunity Center for the Homeless, El Paso Rescue Mission and others.
El Paso Public Library’s Food for Fines program will give patrons the opportunity to pay library fines by donating canned and nonperishable food during the event. Fines reduced by $1 for every can of food donated up to $5 per day, provided that library books and materials have been returned in good condition.
