LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– The Lexington Parking Authority announced Friday that its LEXPARK program will once again run the nationally recognized “Food for Fines” canned food drive from Nov. 19 through Dec. 14.

Customers who bring in 10 cans of food will receive $15 off any LEXPARK or Lexington Police parking citation. Customers with multiple citations may bring in as many cans as they wish and receive $15 credit for every set of 10 cans. Past due citations are eligible. The LEXPARK office is located at 122 North Broadway.

During the previous four years LEXPARK has collected 32,200 cans of food, over 16 tons in total. All canned food donations received by LEXPARK will be donated to God’s Pantry Food Bank. Canned vegetables which are at least 14-15 oz. large and protein items such as canned meat, beans or peanut butter are suggested.

* 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. *
