NPL and Second Harvest Food Bank’s Food for Fines program is one of our most successful community collaborations. People get their fines paid and Second Harvest gets (literally) tons of food. This year we wanted to go even further to combat hunger. The library is hosting a number of programs to raise hunger awareness. Below are some books that explore our nation’s food problems and how we can fix them.
