Andover Municipal Court implements new Food For Fines Program

Food for Fines - $5 per one canned good up to $50 max credit on court fines

At the 06/28/2021 Council Workshop,  Andover Municipal Court Clerk, Michelle Matson, received the City Council's approval to implement a new Food For Fines Program.

If you receive a citation, the Food for Fines option not only allows you to benefit from some financial relief but also helps another family in need.

  • You can receive a $5 fine reduction per one (1) non-perishable item donated.
  • There will be a maximum of $50.00 credit per person.

We will not accept:

  • Dented Items
  • Rusted Cans
  • Expired Items
  • Non-labeled Items

Donations will only apply to fines assessed by the court, not the mandatory state fees or reinstatement fees.

Please call the Municipal Court at (316) 733.4510 for eligibility.

All food items will be donated to the Andover Food Bank
