“What is this place?” has to be the #1 question asked by people coming through our door (followed by #2 “What do I need to join?” and #3 “Do you have chicken salad?”) So what IS The Hive? We are a health department-inspected shared commercial kitchen space available to rent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We currently have 2,400 square feet of workspace with stations for cooking, baking, food prep, dish washing, as well as cold and dry storage space available to our rental customers. Want to join The Hive? Find out how on our Getting Started page.

  • Meal Ministry for Families in Crisis
    I wanted to make a post today to hopefully draw some attention to a local organization here that has been working to help some of our most vulnerable neighbors. The organization is the Meal Ministry for Families in Crisis, and it was started by local resident Joi Walker. I’ve attached a copy of the letter she gave me that provides details about the meal ministry. Joi’s group provides meals for families in the area who have been affected by various health issues, and the group runs on donations.
