Nelson Food Cupboard coordinator Anna Kirkpatrick (left) accepts a donation from The Nelson Public Library’s June Stockdale raised during its Fines for Food Day last month. Fines collected were added to donations from the public and staff for a total of $180. Kirkpatrick says that the Food Cupboard is always grateful for donations at any time of year so that the organization can continue to provide healthy food for individuals and families in need.
