Canned food donations are parking ticket payments
SOUTH BEND —
Got a parking ticket on Notre Dame's campus?
Starting Monday, the University of Notre Dame Security Police will accept nonperishable food donations as payment for parking tickets or fines.
It’s all to address food insecurity in the community. Each donated food item will be worth $2 in fine payments.
There will be a limit of 30 food items per person. The program started last year and raised 3,000 pounds of food representing $5,700 in fines. It will run through December 8.
