Food for Fines is a joint AMS and UBC Library initiative to support disadvantaged members of the community. UBC Library users who wish to donate non-perishable food items may have $2 in fines paid for each food item donated, up to a maximum of $20. Food donations will be given to local food banks.
The Food for Fines program will take place in all UBC Library branches from November 27th to December 4th. Acceptable food donations include any non-perishable canned or packaged food. Perishable items or anything requiring refrigeration cannot be accepted.
People who do not owe library fines, but who still wish to donate food, may do so – but we cannot credit their Library account.
