MPD Food for Fines

From the Menomonie Police Department Facebook page:

Mark your calendars for this year's Food For Fines program! If you have outstanding parking tickets or know someone who *always* seems to forget to plug their parking meter, now is your chance to resolve those and help those in need. We have been able to donate approximately 6,000 pounds of food to Stepping Stones of Dunn County since 2016! In 2021 alone, 833 pounds of food were donated.

We will be holding our Food For Fines program from November 1-December 31. Citizens may bring in canned food items to the MPD during business hours to receive $2 off of their parking citation for each item donated.

**Public safety-related parking violations are not accepted as a part of this program. These include but are not limited to: parking in a fire lane, double parking, blocking traffic and parking in a handicap spot.**
