Get to Know Co-op Basics and Co-op Cares

Hunger Mountain Co-op is committed to offering a wide variety of high-quality products produced in an environmentally sound and socially conscious manner for a fair price.

As a cooperative grocer, we are driven by our mission and ends policies, the Cooperative Principles, and meeting the needs of our staff, vendors, member-owners, customers, and community. Undeniably, one of those needs is access to affordable foods and household goods. We achieve this in part through our Co-op Basics and Co-op Cares programs.

Our Co-op Basics are grocery staples priced to be affordable every day. Our basics items are primarily organic, free of artificial ingredients, and environmentally-friendly household goods. The list of items changes monthly, as we evaluate options based on availability, price, and customer preferences.  Find the current Basics flyer here. Below are a couple of recipes you can try, utilizing some Co-op Basics products.

The Co-op Cares program is a member-owner benefit intended to help our community increase access to healthy, local, and organic foods. Co-op members, who are currently receiving 3SquaresVT benefits, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or are participating in the WIC program are eligible for a 10% shopping discount at our co-op.
