The Library is running a two-week Food Drive from Monday August 13 to Sunday August 26.
Students are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the team at the Albany Library, where donations can be accepted as payment for outstanding library fees.
So, you can pay off your late fees with a can of soup that has been living in the back of your pantry.
Other item ideas may include the usual canned fruit or packet pasta, or even baking mixes and baby food.
As long as the items are non-perishable, undamaged and unopened, they will be accepted.
All of the food collected will be donated to local foodbanks around the North Shore community.
Food Banks ensure that families who struggle to make ends meet do not have to compromise food and go hungry.
With rising power bills during the winter months, this is a great time to make life easier for local families through supporting this cause.
To drop-off donations or for further information, see the Massey Albany Library team at the Library reception desk.
