November Local Focus

Our community extends well beyond the walls of the Co-op. Each month, we shine the spotlight on a new group of local partners to help share their stories and celebrate their role in our community.

Bag That Bag to Help a Neighbor in Need

Help support the Montpelier Food Pantry every time you shop at Hunger Mountain Co-op just by remembering your reusable bags! For each bag, basket, or box that you use at the register, we will donate five cents to the Food Pantry. Last month, this totaled $1,121.95 and saved 22,439 paper bags. Since July of 2019, we have donated $3,156.55 to the food pantry and replaced 63,131 paper bags. And over the past three years, Hunger Mountain Co-op shoppers have collectively raised nearly $33,000 for the food pantry! Read more about the work of Just Basics, Inc and the Food Pantry.

Linda Hogan Photography

“There is so much beauty to see in our day to day journeys, be it in our own community or expeditions beyond to other places. I always carry a camera to remind me to slow down and take in the familiar, the changes inherent in light and seasons, or exploring new landscapes both outside and interiors. The photographs are a journal of some of the things I have seen and chose to share with my community.” Read more about Linda Hogan.
