Food for Textbook Program

Girl reading a textbook

Food for Textbook Program (Starts Fall 2017)

How the program works:

  • Bring 10 cans of food to the Mission College Library to check out one textbook. Each 10 cans of food = one textbook. 
  • Check out the textbook for the entire semester.
  • A Fall 2017 Mission College Student I.D. Card is required to participate in this program.
  • Donated canned food goes to Second Harvest Food Bank.
  • Quantities are limited – first come, first served.

The Food for Textbook Program is made up of donated textbooks. Please consider donating your used textbooks to this program. 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.

How to check out a Food for Textbook book:

Until supplies run out, you can bring your food cans to the Information Desk anytime during the Library’s open hours. 

Important: A Fall 2017 Mission College Student I.D. Card is required to participate in this program.

How to determine which textbooks are available:

Below is the list of the current textbooks available for this program. Click on the textbook title to see how many copies we have and if any are available for checkout. The list will be updated  throughout the semester as donations are received. If your title is not listed or is listed as out of stock, please check back as it may be added later.
