Hunger Mountain Co-op exists to create and sustain a vibrant community of healthy individuals, sustainable local food systems, and thriving cooperative commerce.

We host a variety of events, including product demos led by our demo coordinator and many of our local vendors, educational wine & cheese tastings, tabling with area nonprofits, Co-op council meetings, and more. Check out the calendar below for all the details.

Our Co-op also curates workshops as part of our mission to educate the community, offering diverse learning opportunities while holding presenters accountable for providing information that is informative and well-researched. Workshops are free unless otherwise noted and are typically held in our upstairs Community Room, with access to a freight elevator upon request. Space is limited and pre-registration is encouraged. To reserve a seat for any of our workshops, use the online registration form here, sign up on the bulletin board in our exit way, or call us at 802-262-3202.

    “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” – Virginia Woolf

    Dining on exceptional food and reading an extraordinary book are two great pleasures, and we hope you’ll join us for a book club, co-presented by Kellogg-Hubbard Library, designed to bring those two joys together. Each month, we’ll read a work that is about or related to food, including both fiction and nonfiction books.

    Titles for the rest of 2019 are:

    July 25  – The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister

    August 22 – The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats by Daniel Stone

    September 26 – The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones

    October 24 – Buttermilk Graffiti: A Chef’s Journey to Discovery America’s New Melting-Pot Cuisine by Edward Lee

    November 21 – Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery

    December 19 – American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters, and Fields by Rowan Jacobsen

    Kellogg-Hubbard Library can request copies of books through their Interlibrary Loan system, so if you cannot afford to buy the book or don’t want to buy it, you can get a copy at the library. You will need a library card in order to do that. Library cards are free for anyone who lives in Montpelier, East Montpelier, Berlin, Calais, Worcester or Middlesex. If you own a business in Montpelier, but live outside of the service area, you can get a free library card. If you don’t live in those towns, the annual fee for a library card is $40, $35 for people 65 and older.

    If you would like to purchase a copy of the book through Bear Pond Books, please let us know. If five or more people order the book, Bear Pond will give you 20% off, but there have to be at least five ordered. If you’re interested, let us know as early as possible, so we can contact the bookstore and let them know how many books to order.

    Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. To attend this free workshop, sign up on the bulletin board in our exit way, call us at 802-262-3202 or use this online form.

    All workshops are held in the Hunger Mountain Co-op community room unless otherwise noted, with access to a freight elevator upon request.

    18 High St. (Rt. 2), Plainfield, Vermont 05667
    18 High St. (Rt. 2), Plainfield, Vermont 05667

    10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 22nd. Featuring Weathering Heights Meteorologist Roger Hill & Vermont State Climatologist Dr. Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux

    What is up with the weather? And what is up with global climate? Where does this all seem to be heading, and what impact will this all have upon Vermont and New England?

    This is a free public forum led by Vermont’s well-known weather forecaster Roger Hill and by UVM Professor Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux, who is Vermont’s State Climatologist as well as one of the lead authors of the stunning 4th National Climate Assessment, (just published in November 2018). There will also be a quick overview of ocean patterns in the North Atlantic off the coasts of Canada, United States and Greenland.

    This in-depth event is meant to provide the foundation for an informed debate into the future, so we can develop mitigation strategies, plan our response with friends & families, and adapt to changes already underway.

    Sponsored by the Town of Plainfield Hazard Mitigation Committee.
