Summer Early Bird Special

Every season, we have a special promotion to say Thank You to our members who are ready to dive in to our next season. Here are this year's great perks:

  • For everyone - receive a complimentary flatbread from American Flatbread Burlington Hearth!
  • For 5 lucky winners - win $100 credit toward your subscription!

When you sign up early, it helps us get the ball rolling with our farmers, place orders, and make plans for the new season. (It also saves us a lot of worrying around the deadline!)

The details:

American Flatbread Token: All Early Bird members will receive a complimentary flatbread token from American Flatbread Burlington Hearth. This token is good for one free flatbread in their Burlington restaurant, to say THANK YOU for supporting Vermont farmers and food makers. These tokens are delivered in your delivery, in the second or third week of the season.

$100 Credit: We decided to spread the love this year. 5 very lucky Early Bird members will win a credit, $100 for each winner, toward your subscription. This is a special prize from us to say THANK YOU! The winners of this lucky prize will be drawn before the start of Summer Deliveries. This credit will be applied to your account, and so it could come in the form of a credit if you pay by installments, a refund if you paid in full, or you can keep in on file for an upcoming order or upcoming season.

Order your Summer/Fall 2018 Subscription by
Sunday, April 8

Policy Update: More Vacation Week Options

Your commitment to the Intervale Food Hub offers a huge benefit to the farmers we work with, so we're here to make it fun and easy for you too.

Summer is busy! We have lots of choices for how to make your delivery schedule work for you, and we're now offering credit for vacation weeks!

Send and email or call us to let us know about your schedule change in advance, and choose one of these options:

  • You can schedule a time to pick up you food from the Intervale Center earlier/later in the week, or,
  • You can hold delivery the week you'll be away, and double up your delivery the following week, or,
  • If you request your change one week or more in advance of your delivery date, you have the option to get a refund or credit for 75% of the week's value.

Our goal is to offer you options that will help make your Intervale Food Hub subscription work with your busy schedule. You are not limited in the number of vacations that you take or in the number of schedule changes that you request, as long as you make a request with enough time for us to make the change before your next delivery. As always, please request ANY schedule changes at least 2 days in advance. We're happy to make schedule changes days or weeks in advance, as soon as you know your schedule! With our new credit policy, we offer 75% for the week's value rather than 100% to help cover the administrative costs of our service.
