You are here: You Own It > For Member Owners

Hunger Mountain Coop would not exist without our Member-Owners. Our co-op’s strength is easily measured by the loyalty and involvement of Member-Owners like YOU. We encouraged you to stay in touch, participate, and give us the benefit of your suggestions. Here are some helpful links

 that will allow you to get the most out of your Member-Ownership.

Shop The Coop, You Own It!

Your patronage is what allows Hunger Mountain Coop to thrive and provide our community with great food, great service, and a great place to work. Check out ways to save at the Co-op here.

Embrace the Benefits

Owning the store where you shop is pretty great, and what’s even better is receiving all the benefits that go with it! Make the most out of your co-op Member-Ownership by taking advantage of discounts at local businesses through our Community Links Directory, learn something new by attending a discounted workshop, and let your voice be heard by contacting a Coop Council member or one of our helpful staff. Does an illness or hardship prevent you from coming to The Coop the shop? You can still receive your benefits by requesting a Shopping Pass by emailing

Maintain Your Member-Ownership

If you have not yet reached your full equity payment of $180, we’ll get in touch with you in May/June and ask you to make your next payment.
