Unique challenges call for unique solutions. At Bevier Café, we want to make sure that everybody eats. In an effort to do our part in the face of COVID-19, we will be testing a new pay-what-you-can model in Bevier Café for the remained of the fall 2020 semester.
Bevier Café will continue to serve the same delicious menu, but with four distinct payment options.
- Pay the suggested price (menu price)
- Pay what you can (name your own price)
- Pay more (suggested price + a little extra)
- Pay it forward (buy a meal for someone else)
Similar pay-what-you-can models have been successfully implemented in 60+ restaurants throughout the country. It is an innovative way to cover costs while feeding all people; regardless of financial means. With any luck, our pay-what-you-can system will allow us to continue teaching foodservice operations management to FSHN 340 students, continue to serve delicious food to hungry patrons, and take real action toward fighting on-campus food insecurity.
