Food For Fines

 

Food for fines is a new program at UTA that allows students to donate nonperishable food items in exchange for credit towards their library fines. I had a chance to sit and talk with the coordinator of UTA’s Food Pantry and a staff member of the User Engagement Services to learn more about the program. Donation boxes were located in the three library’s here on campus at UTA. The overall mission in starting this new program is to help students pay off their fines and also keep UTA’s Food Pantry stocked to help other students in need.
