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 both the Vancouver Food Bank and the AMS Food Bank.
The Food for Fines program will take place in all UBC Library branches from Monday, November 24th to Sunday, November 30th (inclusive). Acceptable food donations include any non-perishable canned or packaged food. Perishable items or anything requiring refrigeration cannot be accepted. Those without library fines may donate food; however, their Library accounts could not be credited.
