CU to let parking scofflaws pay tickets with food donation

Posted at 8:31 AM, Nov 14, 2016

BOULDER, Colo.-- Drivers who received a parking ticket on the University of Colorado's Boulder campus will be allowed to pay the fine with a food donation this week instead of with cash.

The university is partnering with the Harvest of Hope Pantry, a Boulder food assistance program, for the "Food for Fines" food drive, the Daily Camera reports.

Some restrictions apply, but people who received a ticket before Nov. 1 can bring in a minimum of four non-perishable food items to the CU Parking Services lobby and have the fine waived on the afternoons of Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Citations that exceed $50 will not be waived with a food donation.
