Food 4 Fines

Parking Services is partnering with Replenish food pantry to host Food 4 Fines. This program allows Lakers to pay towards parking citations (up to 2 citations) by donating needed items to Replenish. Donations are accepted at Parking Services on the Allendale campus only, but you may pay towards citations from Pew campus too. This donation program will run from Monday Sept. 25 to Friday Oct. 6. If interested, please refer to the Food 4 Fines page. Only citations issued after Aug. 16 are applicable to this program. ADA, Fire Lane, Building Entrance violations, and citations that have been sent to Student Accounts or Collections will not be valid for donations.


When entering the citation link below, if you are not a GVSU student or F/S member, you will need to LOGIN AS GUEST. To do so, you will need your Driver's License number and you will be asked to create a password. We recommend using your birthday, as it is easy to remember and we cannot reset the password for you in the future. You will continue to use this information to login for any future visits.
