Will reduce fines for food

Reduce your fees and fines by supporting local food banks this holiday season. UVic Libraries and Campus Security Services are waiving fines in exchange for donations of non-perishable food items for the Mustard Seed Food Bank, the UVic Family Centre and UVic Student Society’s Food Bank.
A donation of one food item reduces your library fine by $2 and reduces your parking ticket fine by $5. Last year, UVic Libraries forgave almost $4,000 in fines and Campus Security Services collected over 100 pounds of food for UVic students in need.
According to Jaraad Marani, UVSS Director of External Relations, student need for food bank items increases every year. The UVSS Food Bank received over 800 unique visits in the month of September alone.
Food for Fines runs until Dec. 9 at UVic Libraries and until Dec. 16 at Campus Security Services.
