About COVID-19

For a general overview of the virus, specific information about avoiding and treating the illness, vaccine information, and regular updates, we recommend the Vermont Department of Health website.

How Our Co-op is Responding

So much has changed in the last seventeen months. We adapted to a new way of doing things, and our co-op community has been overwhelmingly supportive. Our team continues to work hard to provide a safe shopping experience. Here’s the latest from our General Manager. 

We no longer require facial coverings at the Co-op, though we encourage unvaccinated shoppers to continue to wear a mask. We are monitoring national and local trends and will communicate any changes to this policy if the need arises.

Our current hours are 8 am – 8 pm daily.

We no longer have occupancy limits on the number of shoppers in the store at one time. For those who would like to gauge busyness, we have kept the occupancy counter on our website.

In April 2020, we installed plexiglass shields at cash registers. These will remain in place for the foreseeable future.

We will continue to make hand sanitizer available throughout the store.

Our hot and cold food bar has reopened. There is outside seating available under a tent in the front of the store.

We will resume offering food samples outside in early August.

We’re continuing to provide enhanced pay and benefits to our employees during this stressful time.

Online Ordering with Curbside Pick-Up

Hunger Mountain Co-op members can order online anytime. Pick-up times are available seven days a week between 11 am and 7 pm. There are no additional fees for ordering online. When you arrive at the Co-op to pick up your groceries, pull up past the front doors to the designated parking spots. Call the number on the sign and let us know your name and the spot where you are parked. We will retrieve your order and place it in the trunk or hatch for you. Place your order. If you need help setting up an account, watch this video. 

The Virus and Food

Currently, there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with food. There are no reported cases of transmission from food products or packaging.
