Paying for parking now does more than save you a parking ticket. The Feed the Meter Campaign is officially underway. All through the month of December when you pay for parking in Belleville, Trenton and Picton proceeds will be donated to the Feed the Meter Campaign, which supports student nutrition programs in Hastings and Prince Edward counties. The goal of the programs is to ensure all students have daily access to breakfast, lunch and or snacks while at school. In the 2017/18 school year alone, Food for Learning programs provided 1,076,531 meals and snacks through student nutrition programs. All proceeds of the Feed the Meter campaign will be returned to the schools in the communities where the funds were raised and will be used to purchase groceries for the various programs in those communities. This year’s goal is $30,000.
