Lexington Parking Authority (LPA) Will Conduct "Food for Fines" Holiday Program

Posted: Updated:

LPA announced today that its LEXPARK program will once again run the nationally recognized “Food for Fines” canned food drive from November 16 through December 18.  

Customers who bring in 10 cans of food will receive $15 off any parking citation issued by LEXPARK or the Lexington Police Department. Customers with multiple citations may bring in 10 cans per citation to receive the discount and past due citations are eligible.  The LEXPARK office is located at 122 North Broadway.

"Last year citizens brought in over 6,200 cans of food as payment for over 600 meter citations. We hope by opening the program up to all types of citations, we’ll see those numbers increase this season,” said Parking Authority Executive Director Gary Means.  All canned food donations received by LEXPARK will be donated to God's Pantry Food Bank. Canned fruits and vegetables, proteins, shelf stable milk and peanut butter which are at least 14-15 oz. large are suggested.

“During this time of year when lots of Lexingtonians are looking to give back to their community, it’s wonderful to see organizations like LEXPARK engage with our Food Bank in creative ways to fight hunger and deliver hope.  These canned food items will help stock the shelves of our four Lexington Pantry locations which help feed hungry Fayette County families year round.  One expired parking meter ticket could mean two meals for hungry Fayette County families,” said Marian Guinn, CEO of God’s Pantry Food Bank.

*Expired, damaged or opened food donations will not be accepted. Please be considerate when selecting donated items. LEXPARK reserves the right to revoke a customer’s participation in this program at any time.*

The goal of the Parking Authority, which was created by the Urban County Council in 2006, is to provide, maintain and operate adequate, high-quality, customer-focused public parking and encourage economic growth.
