Food for Fines

It's back! The 7th Annual "Food for Fines" Spring BINGO runs this year from April 22 through May 3, 2024. No one enjoys receiving a parking citation but now there's an option to help your fellow Vandals and the Moscow community put food on the table this holiday season.

Which citations are eligible?

  • $25 Meter Citations
  • $30 Permit Citations
  • $30 Overnight Citations

How many can I pay with food?

  • ONE citation received between April 22 through May 3, 2024
  • PLUS: up to TWO citations received between Dec. 22, 2023 and April 21, 2024.

How does this work?

  • Select a BINGO Card
  • A BINGO of donated items pays your citation- select a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line

Where do I bring my BINGO items?

  • Bring BINGO items INSIDE to the Parking and Transportation Services office at the Intermodal Transit Center, located at 1006 Railroad Street at the corner of Sweet and Railroad

Where do the donated items go?

  • Items will be donated to the Vandal Food Pantry and local food banks

Important Notes:

  • For food items, packaging must be intact
  • Food must be within a visible expiration date
  • Only items listed on BINGO cards will be accepted
  • Donation must be regular-sized products — NO "sample," "mini," or "travel" sizes
