It happens. Life gets super busy, kids get sick, work gets crazy, paychecks are late or we just plain forget.
We get it. We know that sometimes these things happen. But since the purpose of the Space Coast Food Buying Club is to provide a way to purchase nutritious foods at lower prices—and payment issues and late pickups jeopardize that process—there need to be some rules we all agree to follow.
Because members keep a balance with the club there are not payments per se, for each purchase. Members are required to keep a minimum balance between $100 - $150 in their buying account. At no time may a member place an order without enough money in their account to cover the expected order cost. If you place an order without money in your account to cover it you are asking other members for a loan. Most orders are paid for at the time of the order.
Membership fees and account balances can be replenished on as needed basis by check or online from your bank account by using Dwolla. There is a 25¢ fee for the use of the online payments. Credit and debit cards charge high fees and are not accepted as payment. Instructions will be included in your new member information.
Pick-up times and locations will vary. We realize that pickup deadlines may not always be convenient and that sometimes life gets in the way.
However, we are working with limited space, and have several orders going at once. Perishable foods don’t last, and adequate refrigeration or freezer space is not always available for large orders.
