Pasadena City College students with library late fees are invited to donate food items in exchange for their fees, enabling them to register for the following term, withdraw from a course, obtain their transcript, or graduate, while also assisting students who are food insecure and use the PCC Lancer Pantry. This example of a partnership between departments on campus is a great model and idea other institutions could consider implementing. The library's effort supports Pasadena City College's Lancer Pantry, which serves up to 100 students each day.Explore
