UBC’s Parking Office is running their twice-a-year ‘Food for Fines’ promotion to raise funds for the Alma Mater Society (AMS) Food Bank, an initiative that provides emergency food relief to current UBC students.
Those who pay 50 per cent of their parking tickets (up to $120/2 tickets) will have the remaining 50 per cent of the ticket amount waived and donated to the AMS Food Bank. Payments must be made in person (or by phone) to the staff at the Parking Access Desk in the UBC Bookstore. Any additional donations will go towards the food bank.
UBC Parking’s goal is to raise $5,000. Their next promotion will run in March 2015. Click here for more information.
