The primary hope is to gather plenty of nutrient-rich foods that promote healthy living for both adults and children, a goal that comes through the Catawba County Health Partners’ Give Healthy Initiative.
Acceptable donations should fall within the expiration date indicated on the packaging. Ideal choices include canned meats, soups, canned vegetables and fruits, boxed cereals, grits, dried beans, rice, pasta, pasta sauce, baby food, Jell-O, jams, and small bags of flour or sugar. Ready-to-eat items and individual servings in pop-top cans are also desirable, along with items that don’t require refrigeration or cooking, like peanut butter, crackers, and single-serve fruit cups.
Patrons who don’t currently have overdue materials are also encouraged to participate in the library’s food collection efforts, which will help local food pantries build up their stocks for neighbors in need.
If you have any questions about the Food for Fines program, please call 828.465.8664.
