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 802-262-3242.

If you have any questions or would like to suggest a topic/subject, a class or lecture, or an activity that you would be interested in or feel our community would like to attend, let us know here. If you are interested in possibly presenting or leading a workshop in the future, please review and submit the application found here.

    Member Forum on Co-op's Bylaws

    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    June 12, 2019
    623 Stone Cutters Way

    Please join us for a discussion of your Co-op’s bylaws and potential changes that are currently being considered. These forums are open to all and will be held in our upstairs community room, with elevator access available upon request.

    The forums will take place on:

    Tuesday, June 4 from 6-7pm

    Saturday, June 8 from Noon-1pm

    Wednesday, June 12 from Noon-1pm

    Light refreshments will be served. We will also make it possible to participate in the meeting without attending in person, using online meeting software. Look for more details on that in future announcements, or email us here.

    The Co-op’s bylaws have not been updated in many years. A committee made up of council members and member-owners has been working on possible bylaw changes since last summer. In the forums, they will share their work, listen to your feedback, and answer any questions you might have. To review the work the committee has done so far, you can read the notes from all of their meetings here.

    We will also post the draft bylaw revisions soon.

    If you have any questions about these public discussions, please contact us at info@hungermountain.coop or 802-262-3202. Pre-registration is not required.

    Thank you, and we hope to see you on one of the dates above.

    Fatherhood: Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders Workshop

    5:30 PM-7:00 PM
    June 12, 2019
    623 Stone Cutters Way
    623 Stone Cutters Way

    Presented by The Family Center’s Jennifer Auletta & Chris Robinson

    “It Wasn’t Supposed to Be Like This.” 1 in 4 women experience a Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD), but what about partners/husbands? Whether it is the challenge to supporting a partner/wife who is struggling or being one of the 1 in 10 dads who has Postpartum Depression or Anxiety themselves, we know that partners/husbands are deeply affected by the transition to parenthood.

    The Central Vermont Perinatal Mental Health Coalition is offering this community workshop to raise awareness and decrease stigma about PMAD and its effect on all members of a family, to share our growing local network of supports for families and offer participants opportunity to share their experiences. This workshop is in conjunction with Good Beginning’s hosting of its second Annual Climb Out of Darkness, a Postpartum Support International event, June 15 in Montpelier.

    Becoming a parent is one of the biggest life transitions we go through, postpartum reactions are common, often unexpected, and deserve the best attention to help your family thrive.

    Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. To attend this free workshop, use this online form or call us at 802-262-3202

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