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.

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