“Without inner peace, outer peace is impossible.” — Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
We care about who we buy from, so we buy as much as we can from fair trade, co-operative or green companies
We care about you, the customer, so we give you the best tasting and nutritious food and drinks at an affordable price
We care about the environment, so we buy sustainable materials, recycle and buy from local suppliers where possible
We care about all the other living beings on this planet, so we offer an entirely vegetarian menu
The World Peace Cafe is entirely run by volunteers. People volunteer at the World Peace Cafe for a variety of reasons. Some people are Buddhist, and they volunteer to support the Buddhist community here in Halifax. Other people are vegan/vegetarian or simply support want to support what they feel is an important project. The cafe is also happy to liase with local support sevices and provide volunteering opportunities for people with special needs. Whereas others are just looking for a fun experience, to meet other people, or because they just like volunteering.
Whatever reason you might have to volunteer, we would welcome your input. You can get started today by calling the cafe or by emailing email@example.com
