What's Food for Fines?


Food for Fines is a Food Drive held by Founders Memorial Library, Dec 2 (2019) - Jan 13 (2020). All donations are intended for Huskie Food Pantry, the on-campus food pantry for students.

How Does It Work?

As a Food Drive, we are primarily interested in food donations for NIU students. But, wait there's more! Each donated item counts as $1 deducted from library fines and fees (capped at $50).

Donated items should be nonperishable (cans, boxes) and must not be expired.

All donated items can be dropped off at the Circulation Desk, Founders Memorial Library.

Contact the Circulation Desk with any questions: (815)753-9844.

As always, please return your library materials!
