We collected 2,129 items during the 2019 food drive which were delivered to local food pantries. Thanks for your help!

Food Drive

July 12–22, 2019

Help to restock your local food banks by donating food at your library from July 12-22!

What should I donate?

Items such as peanut butter and jelly, mac and cheese, tuna fish, cereal, and canned vegetables are always in high demand. Please no expired or perishable foods.

What happens with my donation?

All donations are sent to local food pantries, so your donation goes directly to your community.

Will you be waiving library fines for my donation?

We have eliminated overdue fines! Since Maricopa County Library District customers no longer have overdue fines on their accounts, there are no fines to waive with a donation. Learn more about eliminating overdue fines. Ask staff about a Summer Reading Program secret code to earn bonus points for donating.
