Get Involved

Eager to make a positive impact in your community? Consider taking part in one of our many exciting programs at the Co-op. Throughout the year, the Co-op offers a range of opportunities for community members to get involved and give back.

Give Change

Raise funds and awareness for a great cause! Each month, we feature a local nonprofit at the register as our Give Change register round-up recipient. Co-op shoppers can show their support by rounding up to the nearest dollar or making a donation at the register. 

Previous partners include:

  • Community Harvest of Central Vermont
  • Downstreet Housing & Community Development
  • Kellogg-Hubbard Library
  • Central Vermont Humane Society
  • Capstone Community Action
  • Good Samaritan Haven
  • Good Beginnings of Central Vermont
  • People’s Health & Wellness Clinic
  • Vermont Foodbank
  • Outright Vermont

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Every November and December, Hunger Mountain Co-op and Northfield Savings Bank team up to provide healthy meals for our neighbors in need by hosting a food and fund drive benefitting the Vermont Foodbank. In its three-year history, this program has raised $56,873.76 and collected 4,094 pounds of food for the Vermont Foodbank.

Bag That Bag

Bring your own bag and help your neighbors at the same time! For every reusable bag that you use, the Co-op donates five cents to the Montpelier Food Pantry. Since launching Bag That Bag in 2016, the Co-op has raised more than $65,000 and has replaced more than 1 million paper bags.

Slash Your Trash

In April, we encourage our co-op community to join our Slash Your Trash campaign. As individuals, we can all take steps to reduce our waste and collectively make a bigger impact.

 

We’d like to thank all our shoppers who participated in 2023’s Slash Your Trash campaign. We had 209 pledge card submissions to take actions such as selecting local or organic products whenever available, choosing reusable containers and bags when possible and recycling things like wine corks, batteries and can carriers. While our individual actions can sometimes feel small, when we act together it can make a big difference. We at the Co-op are committed to continuing our efforts to reduce our impact year-round, and we hope you will join us.
