When you give the gift of a gift card from Hunger Mountain Co-op, you are doing much more than giving the gift of good food. You are giving someone the opportunity to help create and sustain a vibrant community of healthy individuals, sustainable local food systems and thriving cooperative commerce.
When the recipient uses their gift card, they are supporting the local economy by spending their money where it will go back into the community through a wide variety of avenues, from sponsorships and donations to purchasing goods and services from local vendors.
For example, in 2018, we had 491 Vermont vendors and $8.2 million dollars went towards purchases of their products, from 59,446 dozens of local eggs to 93,592 pounds of local apples.
That kind of contribution to and support of the local economy is just one of the many ways you and your gift card recipient can support positive local impacts by shopping at the Co-op.
You can purchase your gift card online here or at our customer service desk during regular hours.
Thank you for shopping at Hunger Mountain Co-op and Happy Holidays!
