‘Peanut Butter Parking’ Campaign

Kylar Royer

After a three-year pause, Campus Services has teamed up with the Whataburger Resource Room to bring back UTSA’s Peanut Butter Parking Campaign, an initiative that allows individuals on campus to pay for their parking citations with a jar of peanut butter. This campaign is applicable for ‘Runners who were issued parking citations between Monday, Aug. 28th and Friday, Sept. 1. 

Eligible citations include parking without a valid or proper permit with a $25, $50 or $100 charge. A 40 oz or 80 oz jar of peanut butter, depending on the given citation, is all that is needed to pay off the ticket.

To ensure your citation is forgiven, there are specific rules that are required for the Peanut Butter Parking event. First, donations must be given within 14 days of the citation issue date, and the campaign only allows for one donation per person. Next, appealing the citation forfeits any eligibility of paying off the citation with a donation. Campus Services and the Whataburger Resource Room are also accepting allergen-friendly donations, such as sun butter and other kinds of nut butter. Finally, the program asks that the donations are not in glass containers.

Paying for your citations is fairly simple — all eligible citations and donations at the Main Campus are to be taken to Campus Services (MS 1.01.52) during their operating hours,  from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Students at the Downtown Campus can submit their donations at FS 2.424C during the same hours. 

Kevin Price, Senior Associate Vice President for Campus Services, shared his excitement for the campaign on the Business Affairs webpage. “We’re thrilled to bring back the Peanut Butter Campaign this year so that we can continue to make a positive impact while enhancing the campus experience for all Roadrunners.” 

Overall, this event has provided a creative and fun way for students and staff at UTSA to learn about the university’s parking services while providing aid to our on-campus food pantry.
