Position: Hive Free Lunch Delivery & Support Coordinator 

Deadline to apply: August 23rd, 2019

Salary: $17 per hour, 10 – 15 hours a week 






Mission of Hive Café Co-op

The mission of the Hive Cafe Co-op is to be a model food system at Concordia University that provides food through sustainable practices and empowers the student community.


Program Description

Hive Free Lunch Program offers a free vegan, nut free lunch every school day at the Loyola Campus between 12:30 and 1:30 PM. We aim to provide quality, nutritious food, while considering the social and environmental impact of the food we consume. The Hive Free Lunch Program provides a unique opportunity to foster a sense of community around food and food production. The Hive Free Lunch Program strives hard to create an inclusive space, that allows volunteers and coordinators to collaborate to create daily vegan meals that feed up to 300 students a day on the Loyola Campus.


This position works with the Hive Free Lunch Program Coordinators to facilitate food delivery and food transformation for the Hive Free Lunch team! 


Unfortunately, due to the location of the Hive Free Lunch Program (on the 2nd floor of the SC building, where there is no elevator to date) and the needs of the program, the person hired will be required to perform intense physical labor, carrying large amounts of food upstairs and subsequently arranging it in storage. We recognize that this limits the position to folks who are physically able to perform these tasks and recognize the inaccessibility of program in that regard, and apologize that this is an exclusionary factor for many.
