    With Robert Barossi of Hunger Mountain Co-op

    “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” – Virginia Woolf

    Dining on exceptional food and reading an extraordinary book are two great pleasures, and we hope you’ll join us for a book club, co-presented by Kellogg-Hubbard Library, designed to bring those two joys together. Each month, we’ll read a work that is about or related to food, including both fiction and nonfiction books.

    This month's book is: The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats by Daniel Stone

    Titles for the rest of 2019 are:

    September 26 – The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones

    October 24 – Buttermilk Graffiti: A Chef’s Journey to Discovery America’s New Melting-Pot Cuisine by Edward Lee

    November 21 – Gourmet Rhapsody by Muriel Barbery

    December 19 – American Terroir: Savoring the Flavors of Our Woods, Waters, and Fields by Rowan Jacobsen

    Kellogg-Hubbard Library can request copies of books through their Interlibrary Loan system, so if you cannot afford to buy the book or don’t want to buy it, you can get a copy at the library. You will need a library card in order to do that. Library cards are free for anyone who lives in Montpelier, East Montpelier, Berlin, Calais, Worcester or Middlesex. If you own a business in Montpelier, but live outside of the service area, you can get a free library card. If you don’t live in those towns, the annual fee for a library card is $40, $35 for people 65 and older.

    If you would like to purchase a copy of the book through Bear Pond Books, please let us know. If five or more people order the book, Bear Pond will give you 20% off, but there have to be at least five ordered. If you’re interested, let us know as early as possible, so we can contact the bookstore and let them know how many books to order.

    Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. To attend this free workshop, sign up on the bulletin board in our exit way, call us at 802-262-3202 or use this online form.

    All workshops are held in the Hunger Mountain Co-op community room unless otherwise noted, with access to a freight elevator upon request.

    Join us for our annual summer Kids Day event on Sunday, Aug. 25, from 10 am – 2 pm, under the tent in our back parking lot.

    The fun will include 30-minute performances by Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate happening every half-hour, a solar-powered bouncy house courtesy of SunCommon, and amazing face painting by Face Mania. Kellogg-Hubbard Library, Good Beginnings of Central Vermont, and our co-op’s Green team will be hosting hands-on activities for kids of all ages. This is a free event, and all are welcome.

     Our Give Change recipient for the month, Central Vermont Humane Society, will be here as well, providing information about their many essential efforts. We will be matching all Give Change register round-up donations made to the humane society that day, so your spare change will have double the impact. You can opt into being asked to round up every time you check out using this form or by visiting customer service.

    In the store, there will be free samples, raffles, our Back to Basics case sale, and 5% savings on bulk food and produce purchases for everyone. Find out more and see the full list of case sale items here.
