Project 365 #333: 291109 That's The Ticket!

Finding a parking ticket on your windshield is usually a heart-dropping, wallet-draining experience. One community in Wisconsin is turning dreaded parking tickets into food for those in need.

For each food item donated to “Food for Fines,” $2 is taken off the ticket’s cost. The program started in 2016 and has donated more than 5,000 pounds of food to Stepping Stones, a non-profit that seeks to prevent hunger, homelessness, and isolation.
