Please join us for a free dinner and discussion focusing on local food, including the opportunities for strengthening and supporting our local food system.

The event will be held at the Montpelier Senior Activity Center from 5:30-8pm. Doors will open at 5:15. Dinner will be provided by the Co-op starting at 5:30.

From 6:30-7:30, there will be a panel discussion centered on the local food theme and including Jake Claro, Farm to Plate Director at the Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund, Olivia Dunton, Hunger Mountain Co-op’s Lead Buyer, and Jason Elberson, co-owner of Sobremesa, a local vendor based in Marshfield, making excellent fermented foods which they will be sampling during the event.

The panel discussion will include topics such as the priorities for strengthening our local food system, what shoppers at the Co-op can do to support those priorities, and what exciting prospects are on the horizon. The panelists will also take questions from the audience.

Following the panel discussion, there will be a question and answer session with the Co-op's council, providing the opportunity to find out more about the inner workings of your Co-op and its council.

To RSVP, use the online form here, call 802.262.3202, or sign up on the council bulletin board at the front of the store to confirm your spot.

Deadline to RSVP is Tuesday, 4/23. Hope to see you there.
