The CSU has recognized that students at Loyola have little-to-no options when it comes to where they can have lunch.
Hive Free Lunch is a free vegetarian lunch (vegan option available), offered every weekday during the school year at the Loyola campus between 12:30 and 1:30 PM. Located next to the Hive Cafe on the second floor of the SC building. Hive Free Lunch aims to provide quality, nutritious food while considering the social and environmental impact of the food we consume. The Hive Cafe Co-op is able to provide this program through funding from the CSU, and the hard work of volunteers and Hive worker members.
Cooking begins around 9:30 AM and continues till service at 12:30 PM. Everyone works together to ensure the meal is delicious and on time. Volunteers help with everything from prepping, cooking, serving and cleaning up. We start prep for the next day while the meal is being served, in order to be able to start cooking first thing the next morning.
The Hive free lunch is a unique opportunity to foster a sense of community around food. Everyone works hard to develop an anti-oppressive environment, creating a safer space to share and learn cooking skills together.
