About Us

 

The Intervale Food Hub is committed to offering the best local food available in Vermont, through local food subscriptions and wholesale purchasing. Our community of farmers and food makers are at the heart of everything we do. We have close relationships with all of our producers, and our goal is to provide 100% transparency and traceability so that you can get to know them, too. 

As a mission-driven business, the Intervale Food Hub supports the Intervale Center's work to sustain healthy farms, land, and people. Our food comes from a community of Vermont farmers and food makers who are dedicated to using safe, sustainable practices to bring us delicious, healthy, and nutritious food. We share the methods used for producing all of our food – whether it’s certified organic, pasture raised, grass fed, EcoApple, wild caught, or beyond. You will feel great about what you eat.


Notes from Our Members

 

“I really enjoyed having plenty of food to share with friends and family. I also loved getting vegetables I won't necessarily buy in the grocery store. It was great to spend less time shopping and more time creating tasty, healthy meals!” -- Margaret C.

"Food has been amazing!  It is great to have fresh local food! I also loved trying a lot of new products through the Omnivore package.  Delivery has been great! Easy, convenient, and reliable!” -- Denise K.

"This is our second season with the Food Hub and we love the convenient pick-up options and the variety of items in our share -- our fridge has been overflowing with abundance! We love getting the email newsletter each week to see what will be in our share, and the recipe suggestions are a great head-start… Thanks for all that you do, we're really happy to be part of the Food Hub.” -- Eli A.


 

FAQ

Our Promise

We strive to provide you with the highest quality food, and to provide transparency and traceability. We want you to feel great about what you eat. If at any point in time you are not 100% happy with food that you have received, please contact us.

Can I order week by week?

No. When you sign up for the Intervale Food Hub, you join for the full season. Your commitment helps to support our community of farmers and food makers. We are here to support you throughout the season with recipes and cooking tips, and we encourage you to try new foods, new cooking techniques, and new recipes.

How does the weekly pick up work?

Your food will be delivered to your chosen delivery location, in a basket with your name on it, at the same day and time each week.

Please bring your own bag and leave your basket at your delivery location.

If you receive a thermal bag and/or ice packs, it’s OK to take them home - simply return them with your next pick up.

How many people will this feed?

The Vermont Vegetable is designed to provide an average of 25 servings of vegetables per week. (This may vary slightly depending on what’s in season.) The USDA recommends a minimum of 2.5-3 vegetable servings daily for one person, or 17.5-21 vegetable servings weekly, though more servings are recommended for active individuals. This basket is good for one person who cooks often, two people who cook regularly, and is easy to eat with three or more people.

Remember, we’ll provide a weekly newsletter with cooking tips and recipes to support you as you try new foods!

What if I can’t make a pick up or miss a delivery?

If you know ahead of time that you can’t make a pick up, please make arrangements to have a friend, coworker, or family member pick up your food. Or, we would be happy to schedule an alternative pick-up at the Intervale Center or another public delivery location. We ask that you notify us of delivery changes at least 1 day in advance.

We do not pick up food after the pick-up window, and we do not offer credit for missed pick-ups. After the pick-up window, for food safety and site management purposes, food is donated at the discretion of our site champions so that it does not go to waste.

We understand that sometimes life does not go according to plan! So, we do offer a once-per-season replacement basket when you miss a pick up. Replacements are packed with on what we have available in our inventory, so specialty items might not be available for replacement. This food can be picked up at the Intervale Food Hub, or added to your next delivery. Contact us to schedule your replacement

Can I change my order or my delivery location?

Yes. Please contact us to make changes to your order or your pick up location.

What are my payment options?

When you sign up online, you can choose to pay in full or in installments.

You can pay online with PayPal or debit/credit card, or mail a check. Login to your account to make a payment online!

We also accept cash payments and EBT/3SquaresVT payments in person at the Intervale Center office. Contact us to schedule a payment in person.

How do installments work?

If you choose to pay in installments when you order, your installments will be automatically scheduled in your account.

To make automatic installment payments, link your PayPal account to your Intervale Food Hub account when you check out. Then, you will be charged automatically on the first of each month.

You can also pay installments without a PayPal account, by logging in to your account to make payments online each month. Payments are due the 1st of the month. We will send e-mail reminders the following business day. View payment instructions below under “How do I make a payment online?”

Login to your account here to view your payment schedule. If you’d like to adjust the schedule, please let us know.

Please note: Late payments will not cancel your order! If payment is late, the Intervale Food Hub reserves the right to hold your food at the Intervale Center until payment is made. The Intervale Food Hub will withhold delivery when the value of food delivered exceeds the value of payments received.

Can I cancel my order?

We prefer that you honor your commitment to our farmers and food makers for the season. Contact Member Services
