[Libs-Or] share your experience on food for fines program

Hey all:
The Circulation department in my library (Valley Library, OSU) is considering starting a food for fines (F4F) program. I am wondering if those who have already tried this have any advice? My supervisor is also asking how taking food donations will impact our department dollar-wise.  Can you share an approximate dollar amount of fines forgiven during a F4F event, and for comparison to our size and volume, your annual circulation count? Since our department has never tried a program like this before, we have absolutely no data to even speculate on.
Thoughts and advice would be appreciated before next Friday, Oct. 14th.
Thank you!!
