Food for Fines is back!

Let’s work together to make sure Saugus families have the food they need this holiday season! We encourage you to bring in nonperishable food items for donation to local food pantries from November, 2019 through February, 2020. We will reduce any accumulated late fees on your account by $1 per item (this does not apply to lost items/replacement fees). Each item donated should be worth at least $1.  Expired or perishable items will not be accepted.

The following are standard food items that are always in need: Cereal, Pasta, Rice, Tuna, Dry Milk, Pancake Mix, Baked Beans, Baking Mix, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Canned Fruit or Juice, Canned Vegetables, Canned or Dry Soups, Macaroni & Cheese Dinners, Instant Potatoes, Canned Tomatoes or Sauce & Canned Meat.

There is also a need for toiletries such as disposal razors, shaving cream, soap, shampoo, toilet paper, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and deodorant.

Thanks for you help with this important community service!
