Food for Fines starts this week in the Century College Library. April 18th- May 12th, the Century College Library will be accepting food pantry donations as payment for fines. Donated items will go to Century College Food Pantry. The Pantry is looking for nonperishable snacks or light meals.

Each donated item will be worth $1 off your existing library fines, up to $10. This is a great way to clear any library fines before registering for the Summer or Fall Semesters, while helping out fellow students. Bring items to the circulation desk and remember to bring your student ID!

Don’t have fines? Bring food anyway!

Suggested items include:

  • Granola Bars
  • Pretzels
  • Fruit Cups
  • Cereal Cups
  • Cereal Bars
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Applesauce Cups
  • 100 Calorie Packs
  • Snack Mix
  • Oatmeal Packets
  • Cup of Soup


  • Food cannot be used to pay previously paid fines.
  • Expired items will not be accepted

All current students are eligible to use the Food Pantry and can visit the Food Pantry up to twice per month. The only requirement is either a student ID card or student ID number.
