Food for Textbook Program

Food for Textbook AdvertismentFood for Textbook Program

Bring 10 cans of food to the Library to check out one textbook  or graphing calculator for the entire semester. Bring 10 cans of food for each item you want to check out. The food is donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Textbook quantities are limited – first come, first served. Please check to see if your textbook is available before bringing in your cans.

Until supplies run out, bring your canned food to the Library Information Desk anytime during open hours. You will need to know your book title and course number. Note that books cannot be checked out until the first day of the term. For example, books for spring cannot be checked out until the first day of the spring semester.

Important: Only Mission College students are eligible to check out material from this Program. A current Mission College Student I.D. Card is required to check out material from the Library. As with all Library material, the person to whom the item is being checked out must be present.

The Food for Textbook Program is made up of donated textbooks. Please consider donating your used textbooks to the Library. Textbook donations are accepted at the Library Check Out Desk. You do not have to donate a textbook to participate in the Food for Textbook Program.
