The Hive Café Co-op is a Solidarity Cooperative, which means that the membership is composed of three distinct membership categories; user-members, worker-members, and support or community-members. Each category is meant to represent the diversity of needs of those most involved by the Hive Café. This way a fair representation is guaranteed, along with strong accountability and transparency. This across the board representation empowers students to be vital actors in the decision-making processes, which is the main reason why the Solidarity Cooperative model was chosen.
The Hive Café Co-op’s mission is to provide healthy, varied, affordable, organic, locally and ethically sourced/produced food options, while highlighting sustainable practices, employing dignified working conditions for suppliers and worker-members alike, nurturing a community-run space, and fostering an alternative food system to the one currently dominated by a corporate institutional provider through an exclusivity agreement.
