Now in its fifteenth consecutive year at UBC, the Food For Fines campaign waives $2 in Library fines for every food item donated, to a maximum of $30. The program began as a joint initiative to support disadvantaged members of the community, and has become an integral source of the AMS Food Bank’s food reserves to support UBC students in need.

Non-perishable food items were collected at circulation desks and then distributed to the AMS Food Bank.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s campaign!

Please note members of the community are welcome to donate goods year-round at the AMS Food Bank and Greater Vancouver Food Bank. For more information visit the AMS Food Bank website.
