Menomonie is once again allowing people to pay their fines with food.
The city’s Food for Fines program allows people to pay parking tickets with canned goods or non-perishable food items. Each can or box earns you a two-dollar discount. Police say some people bring-in carts full of food. All of the food is donated to the Stepping Stones food pantry. Last year the program brought in 14 thousand pounds of food.
