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.

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.

    623 Stone Cutters Way

    With Regina Powers, RN, NP, Reiki Master

    Regina brings in each of the 5 Elements separately, to use as tools to understand the emotional and physical imbalances in our bodies. She starts with the Earth, the element of relationship. The place we learn to give and receive, as if we block one, we block the other. She works with examples and ways we can do a self-check in our own systems. She shares how to work with bringing this back into balance.

    The experience she shares with the group, always depends on the group. Each element speaks in a way that people may get uncomfortable or react to something their body is looking for, ie:Water has to do with anxiety and fear, or Wood has to do with holding onto anger and frustrations. All the elements have a place in us although this workshop is an avenue to bring attention and light onto where they may need to learn, heal or grow.

    Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. You can reserve your spot using the easy online form here, by emailing us at info@hungermountain.coop or calling us at 802-262-3202.

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

    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.
