How does the charity partnership work?

APPLICATION PROCESS

Through an application process, The Hive Board of Directors will choose three local nonprofit organizations for a period of 5 ½ months, during which our customers vote with each of their transactions. Our charity partners change twice a year.

 

CUSTOMERS CHOOSE THEIR FAVORITE CAUSE

A set of hive “ballot boxes” will feature each charity partner’s name and a bit about their mission.

After a wonderful experience at The Hive, each table receipt receives one token. Simply drop the token into the charity hive of your choice. The Hive net profits will be divided between the number of votes given to each of the featured NPO.

 

BUILDING SOCIAL AWARENESS

We support NPO's that cover a wide gamut of social justice, community and environmental needs. As such, we are a place where anyone can walk in and find an organization that is has a need that they feel passionate about.

These partnerships will serve as a tool and offer opportunities to educate the community on each charity. The charity rotation will benefit not only financially, but will also bring awareness of the cause and needs of each program. Diners will be able to connect and “humanize” an otherwise silent problem in our community.

 

 
 

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. It is the only thing that ever has.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a broad term used to describe a company’s efforts to improve society in some way. These efforts can range from donating money to nonprofits to implementing environmentally friendly policies in the workplace. CSR is important for companies, nonprofits, patrons, and employees alike.

Executing a corporate social responsibility initiative positively impacts our business. Not only does corporate social responsibility give back, it will also increase employee engagement, keep current customers, attract new customers and appeal to donors. 

Social responsibility initiative comes with several specific advantages, The most important is the enhanced relationships with the members of our community.

 

The Hive practices a closed-loop system of sustainability. According to a study conducted by the United Nations, roughly one-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally. This amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year. Restaurants are a big contributor to this problem. Reducing the amount of "unusable" waste in The Hive will lead to lower food costs and, in turn, better margins. Better margins equals more funding for community partners.

The Hive keeps the supply chain short. Seeking out and building relationships with local producers helps cut the time between harvest and delivery. This will, in turn, ensures fresher food and less waste between the field and the table.  

Sustainability has become a big issue for diners. The Hive's kitchen team strives on being creative with the product that would otherwise become trash. Composting plays an important role at The Hive by reducing the amount food destined to be in the landfill.

The Hive limits our use of plastics, and petroleum-based products in the restaurant. The Hive uses post-consumer recycled paper products. The Hive recycles our glass bottles, metals, and paper. 

The Hive will raise the expectation of accountability by engaging our diners in our war on food waste.
