Hunger Mountain Co-op exists to create and sustain a vibrant community of healthy individuals, sustainable local food systems, and thriving cooperative commerce.

We host a variety of events, including product demos led by our demo coordinator and many of our local vendors, educational wine & cheese tastings, tabling with area nonprofits, Co-op council meetings, and more. Check out the calendar below for all the details.

Our Co-op also curates workshops as part of our mission to educate the community, offering diverse learning opportunities while holding presenters accountable for providing information that is informative and well-researched. Workshops are free unless otherwise noted and are typically held in our upstairs Community Room, with access to a freight elevator upon request. Space is limited and pre-registration is encouraged. To reserve a seat for any of our workshops, use the online registration form here, sign up on the bulletin board in our exit way, or call us at 802-262-3202.

    3:00 PM-6:00 PM

    623 Stone Cutters Way

    623 Stone Cutters Way

    This Friday, April 5, we will be having an educational wine and cheese tasting in the center of our store from 3-6pm.

    During April, we will be sampling wines from South America. Most wine lovers have already savored a glass of Argentinean Malbec or Chilean Carménère, but the South American wine industry does not stop with these two signature grapes, nor is it contained to the usual suspects of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. These “noble grapes” may dominate much of the export market these days, but winemakers are experimenting with other “forgotten” varietals exiled to the Americas over the past five centuries in hopes of discovering the next great South American vino. On Friday, we will be sampling wines from Argentina, including Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon, Alamos Malbec, Nicolas Catena Zapata Red, and Clos de los siete Red.

    Along with this selection of wines, we will be sampling a cheddar cheese that results from a collaboration between two major local success stories. Jasper Hill Farm has been making fine cheeses for some time, and are known for their cave-aging process and the many awards their cheeses have won. Cabot Creamery is an internationally known and local beloved cooperative business making a wide selection of great chesses. When you buy products from Cabot, you are supporting a cooperative business made up of 1,000 northeast dairy farms who source their milk locally and all share in common beliefs. Some of their White Oak Cheddar is sent to Jasper Hill and aged in caves to make the Cave Aged Cheddar by Jasper Hill Farm we are sampling on Friday.

    We hope to see you for this exciting tasting on Friday between 3-6pm.Beer and wine tastings are open to anyone aged 21 and older.

Their demise in the 1970’s left a niche unfilled, which is why The Nature Conservancy plants genetically diverse elms to restore floodplains. Come learn about elm history & the journey to revive them on Vermont’s landscapes.

    623 Stone Cutters Way

    The Vermont Land Trust saves the land that makes Vermont special. Since 1977, we have protected farmland and forestland from subdivision and development – knowing that once farms and forests are gone, they rarely come back. We want our children, grandchildren, and future generations to enjoy local food, farming, clean air and water, hiking, hunting, forestry, and sugaring.

    Jon Ramsay, Director of the Farmland Access Program at Vermont Land Trust, will be joined by Elise and Kagen Dewey, of Littlewood Farm in Plainfield, VT. Acquiring affordable land is a huge obstacle for beginning farmers. Vermont Land Trust created the Farmland Access Program to help entrepreneurial farmers find affordable farms of their own. Learn about the program’s successes, including farms that sell to Hunger Mountain Co-op.

    623 Stone Cutters Way

    Community Harvest of Central Vermont (CHCV) is a group of Central Vermonters who are committed to bringing our community together through gleaning to recover surplus food produced on area farms to feed those with limited access to healthy, fresh local food, and in the process help the community to gain a greater awareness and appreciation of the local food system, healthy eating, and waste reduction.

    Allison Levin, Director of CHCV, takes you through the lens of gleaning to explore your relationship with food. This presentation will focus on gleaning in our area and will be followed by an open discussion of using/eating imperfect food, reducing wasted food, and knowing local farms better, among other topics.

    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.

    623 Stone Cutters Way

    Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District provides leadership, education, and services for residents and businesses in reducing and managing their solid waste in order to protect public health and the environment to the greatest extent feasible. CVSWMD is working to end waste for good. While achieving a zero waste district may seem ambitious, we believe that by setting goals high, we can and will find ways to reach them. It’s in the journey to zero waste that efficiencies are created, business is generated, jobs are created, and communities are bound together toward a common outcome. In recent years, we have watched with satisfaction as more and more solid waste entities finally get on board with Zero Waste initiatives and goals.

    CVSWMD’s Outreach Manager Cassandra Hemenway will show you some easy ways to get started composting and do it successfully, and will review other ways to keep your food scraps out of the trash. You’ll learn strategies for jump-starting an old pile, how to keep smells down, and animals out. She’ll talk to you about managing food scraps, why they break down, and how to use food scraps as a resource in your own yard. Everyone goes home with a starter kit.

    The Vermont Land Trust saves the land that makes Vermont special. Since 1977, we have protected farmland and forestland from subdivision and development – knowing that once farms and forests are gone, they rarely come back. We want our children, grandchildren, and future generations to enjoy local food, farming, clean air and water, hiking, hunting, forestry, and sugaring.

    The Land Trust’s Pieter Van Loon, Director of Forest Stewardship, and Caitlin Cusack, Stewardship Forester, will teach you about invasive plants in Vermont, the harm they do, and their impact on our recreation and natural resource economy. They will share techniques for controlling invasives and show examples of successful management.
