In Vermont, one in four of us struggles with hunger. This holiday season, join Hunger Mountain Co-op, Union Mutual, LOCAL 22 & LOCAL 44, and WDEV in helping to provide healthy meals for our neighbors in need, through our second annual Feed A Family Food & Fund Drive.
At the Co-op, between December 5 and 13, you can stock up your pantry and help fight hunger in our community with special Buy One, Give One deals on healthy staples, including organic peanut butter, applesauce, and soups. Feed A Family food donations can be dropped off in the Co-op’s exit way through Thursday, Dec. 13.
On the final day of the drive, Thursday, Dec. 13, Union Mutual, LOCAL 22 & LOCAL 44, and WDEV will be onsite at the Co-op, working together to collect food and funds to benefit the Vermont Foodbank and central Vermont food shelves.
Throughout the day, Co-op customers will be able to donate funds in a variety of ways, including rounding up their purchase to the next dollar when they check out, making a donation at the register, or making a cash donation at the exit way. Hunger Mountain Co-op will match the first $1,000 in financial donations on that day.
Last year, the Co-op, our partners, members, and customers raised $5,160 and 870 pounds of food for our neighbors in need. We hope you will join us in this important effort again this year!
