WATCH: Greater Victoria Public Library delivers donations to Goldstream Food Bank

Donations were raised through the “Food for Fines” program in Oct.

The Greater Victoria Public Library (GVPL) delivered non-parishable food items to the Goldstream Food Bank on Wendesday after completing their Food for Fines program at the end of October.

On Oct. 28 and 29, GVPL accepted donations of a non-parishable food item and in exchange waived overdue fines up to $5 per library cardholder.

The annual campaign started in 2014 and so far has produced more than 250 large boxes of food for local food banks.

The program ran at all 11 Greater Victoria Public Library branches.
