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 802-262-3242.

Presented by Rachel Kennedy, Green Mountain Transit, Sr. Transit Planner
Green Mountain Transit is finishing up a two year comprehensive system redesign. Capital Region changes are slated for implementation with the opening of the Taylor One Transit Center on Taylor St. in Montpelier, in August/September of this year.
We’ve been working hard at refining our plan, based on public comments, through several public outreach periods. We are in the final phase and would love to bring the final plan out to the Hunger Mountain Co-op Community, as part of a larger public outreach initiative, during the first two weeks in July. We will be presenting on changes, doing an interactive activity, and gathering public comment that will inform the final service change recommendations. Please join us, and help shape the future of transit in your region!
Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. To attend this free workshop, use this online form or call us at 802-262-3202
All workshops are held in the Hunger Mountain Co-op community room unless otherwise noted, with access to a freight elevator upon request.
