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.
