This October, Hunger Mountain Co-op is joining over 30,000 co-ops and credit unions across the United States in celebrating Co-op Month. This year’s theme is Co-operatives Commit, highlighting the many ways that co-ops are committed to their communities.
“When you shop at your local food co-op, you are getting more than good food for you and your family,” said Erbin Crowell, Executive Director of the Neighboring Food Co-op Association (NFCA). “You are also joining with other people in your community to build local ownership, provide good jobs, support your local farmers and producers, and build stronger, more vibrant communities.”
NFCA represents more than 35 food co-ops and start-ups in the Northeast, including Hunger Mountain Co-op. Together, we provide good jobs for over 2,000 people, generate revenues of more than $315 million, and purchase more than $60 million from local producers each year.
Look for the “Go Co-op” signs on our shelves that identify products made by co-operatives. Hunger Mountain Co-op proudly carries products from the following co-ops:
Alvarado Street Bakery
Blue Diamond Growers
Cabot Creamery Co-op
Deep Root Organic Co-op
Frontier Natural Products
Last year, the sales of these products totaled $1.2 million, which was 4.9% of our Co-op's annual sales.
Happy Co-op Month!
