Food For Fines – An event brought to you by the AMS and the UBC Library.

Pay off your library fines with food instead of cash! Clean out your cupboards before leaving for the holiday AND clean up your library debt at the same time. All borrowers are eligible, whether they are students, staff, alumni, faculty, or community members.

From November 29th to Dec 3rd, 2004, all borrowers with library fines are eligible for fine waivers. For every non-perishable food item you donate, $2 of your fine will be waived to a maximum of $20. All donations will be given to the
Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.


Q- Can I apply my donation toward future fines?
A – No, we are only able to apply a donation to an existing fine.

Q – Who do I speak to about having my donation applied against my Library fine?
A – Staff at the Circulation Desks at any UBC Library branch will be able to help you.

Q – What types of non-perishable food items are most needed by the Food Bank?
A – Soups, Stews, Chili, Canned Tuna, Canned Salmon, Canned Meats, Beans, Peanut Butter, Pastas, Baby Food, Powdered Milk, Nuts, Dried Fruits
