we’re not currently hiring — in fact everyone involved in the café is volunteering their time until the peacock is on a more secure footing. when we do start hiring, we’ll post about it here, at the café, and on our social media.


the café is seeing more people and serving more food. because we use a pay-what-you-can model, this doesn’t translate to more income for us, which is why we’re calling for volunteers to meet demand.

we’re looking for people who want to donate their time to support the café. right now we need on-site volunteers, not remote. if you want to volunteer, please email us ( or stop by and have a chat!
