The Hive Free Breakfast and Lunch Program offers a FREE breakfast and lunch every weekday at Loyola campus on the 2nd floor of the SC building. 

The Free breakfast is served at 8:30am-9:00am and again at 10:00am-10:30am. Lunch is served 12:30pm-1:30pm. 

Breakfast is a mix of vegetarian and vegan options while lunch is always vegan. Meals are gluten-free a few days a week, and ALL meals are nut-free. 

The Hive Free Lunch & Breakfast provides an essential service to students, faculty and staff at Loyola campus, which is a food desert with very few dining or grocery options. The HFL also provides a unique opportunity to foster a sense of community around food, and everyone works hard in creating a safer space to share and learn cooking skills together. The HFL aims to provide quality, nutritious food while considering the social and environmental impact of the food we consume.

Located in the Hive Cafe Loyola, on the second floor of the SC building next to the library | SC200
building, at 7141 Sherbrooke West.

The Hive Free Lunch kitchen is not an allergen-free kitchen. While we try to keep a close eye on potential allergens, when we state that a particular meal is wheat-free, peanut-free, nut-free, or dairy-free, it means we did not actively use any of these ingredients, and we tried to keep these ingredients as far away as possible from the meal.

If you have an allergy please speak with the cooks or volunteers that helped prepare the meal.

Please note that while SC building is listed as wheelchair accessible on Concordia University’s campus maps, only the ground floor is wheelchair accessible. We are located on the 2nd floor of the SC building, and there is no elevator. If you would like to access free lunch but are unable to due to the accessibility barriers of this building, please contact us at hivefreelunch@gmail.com, and we will arrange food to be brought to the entrance of the SC building for you.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Free Lunch Coordinators at hivefreelunch@gmail.com.
