Robert: University accepting PB&J as payment for parking tickets
The University of Alaska in Anchorage has come up with an idea that will see more students paying off their parking tickets and assist in student living.
The university has announced it will accept donations of peanut butter and jelly as payment for parking violations. The donations of food will then go towards battling student hunger.
University officials say a two 16-ounce (454-gram) jars offer a $10 credit, three jars offer a $35 credit and five jars offer a $60 credit. Unopened commercially produced nut butter-almond, cashew, peanut butter or any flavor jam, jelly, marmalade or preserves will be accepted.
Violators can use PB&J as payments for two citations issued within the past 45 days.
