If you receive a parking ticket before Dec. 10, you can pay it by donating food of equal or greater value to that ticket.
The city’s Food for Fines campaign is back for a 16th year.
Expired parking meter and two-hour zone ticket fines are eligible, the city reminded drivers Friday.
City hall will accept donations until Dec. 14.
All contributions will go directly to the Whitehorse Food Bank, Kaushee’s Place and the Skookum Jim Friendship Centre. Money collected from eligible tickets that are paid online will also be donated.
Past fundraising efforts have been very successful. Since 2005, the city has raised more than $80,000 in cash and food donations for the cause.
Donated food items must be non-perishable, which includes canned foods such as beans, fruit, vegetables and fish, and dried goods such as pasta, cereal and soup.
