Donate to UC Bearcats Pantry through UC Parking Services' Food for Fines

Exchange parking tickets for Bearcats Pantry donations April 1-23

Back for a third year, UC Parking Services is partnering with UC Bearcats Pantry to bring back its Food for Fines campaign this spring. Anyone with a UC parking citation is able to participate in the 2021 Food for Fines program.

UC Bearcats Food Pantry provides free food, hygiene items and cleaning supplies to students with food and other household needs.

How it works: This year, Food for Fines is going virtual. To participate in this year’s program, UC parking citation holders should pay their violation fee(s) online by logging into their parking portal account, and choosing the Food for Fines option. In turn, Parking Services will then make a Bearcats Food Pantry donation that equals the citation’s total amount. 

The Food for Fines program will run April 1-23. For more information, please visit, or call 513-556-5823.
