Minnesota FoodShare

March is Minnesota FoodShare month and TC Library is excited to participate!

But actually, we participate year-round thanks to you and your generosity. You see, TC Library has a fun library-fine forgiveness program called Can Your Fine. This outreach program - the brainchild of Steve Swanson - is a library campaign that raises non-perishable food donations. Your donations go to the food shelf at Lutheran Social Services’ Center for Changing Lives, our next-door neighbors at 2400 Park Avenue.

How can you participate? Return an overdue book, donate three cans of food, and we will wipe the late fee off your library account. Can you be even more awesome? Return your book on time and donate non-perishable food anyway. It is Minnesota FoodShare month, after all!

Steve, Carrie, and Jane usually make the trek over to LSS about every other month with bags and boxes of non-perishable food items. Your donated food is distributed to Minnesotan families twice a month; over 150 households come to the Center for assistance. THANK YOU!!!!

Steve and Carrie gleefully dropping off some food items last summer. Hey Mother Nature. It's March 19th. Maybe you should start thinking about looking like this outside, instead of the white, wind-whipped tundra that is Minnesota today.
