(Newser) – A strange payment option: Anyone with unpaid parking fines at the University of Alaska Anchorage campus has the option to reduce or cover the cost of their tickets with peanut butter and jelly, per the AP. KTUU reports the university will take the food until Friday to help ease student hunger. University officials say each person could use PB&J payments for two citations issued within the past 45 days. Two 16-ounce jars offer a $10 credit, three jars offer a $35 credit, and five jars offer a $60 credit. Officials say any unopened commercially produced nut butter-almond, cashew, peanut butter or any flavor jam, jelly, marmalade, or preserves will be accepted. (Read more Alaska stories.)
