How Does the Peace Cafe Honor System Work?

Everyone needs a snack or a coffee once in a while and that is why we have the Peace Cafe.  It’s a place for you to spend some time, watch what is going on in the gym, and yeah, it’s full of snacks for you to purchase.  Purchase?  But, there is never a cashier in there. Yep, you can purchase whatever is in there and it’s an honor system.  We trust you to pay the marked prices by placing money in the red box and/or paying by Venmo.  This is a project we’ve offered for years and it takes some trust on our part that the members will pay for the snacks that are taken.  Ultimately, it’s up to the members to decide if we want to continue to have this program because we only purchase items with the money we receive…so, no money…no snacks. Pretty simple economics.

It’s never been a problem and we don’t expect it will be but we just wanted to remind everyone to support this properly. Have some ideas for things you’d like to see in there?  Send us a note and we will see what we can do.
