Please scroll down to find answers to some frequently asked questions about our Winter season. Still not finding what you need? Check out our full FAQ list here for information regarding home delivery, contactless pick-up, or billing; or email us at intervalefoodhub@intervale.org. We can't wait to hear from you!

How long is the Winter 2020/2021 season?

The Winter season runs for 30 weeks from the first week of November through the last full week of May, with 27 regular weeks and 3 special holiday weeks of delivery/pick-up.

(First pick-up on Wednesday 11/4/20 and first delivery on Wednesday 11/4/20 or Thursday 11/5/20, location dependent. Last pick-up on Wednesday 5/26/21 and last delivery on Wednesday 5/26/21 or Thursday 5/27/21, location dependent.)

We will offer a special holiday shop the week of Thanksgiving (11/23/20), as well as the last 2 weeks of December (12/21/20 and 12/28/20). During this week, produce packages and omnivore bundles will be put on hold, but our online shop will be stocked with produce, proteins, and provisions for the holidays.

We will resume normal operations the week of 1/4/21 and continue regular deliveries/pick-ups each week through 5/27/21.You can always pause your order by setting a Delivery Hold in your account. Your order will be skipped and your account will not be charged.

How much does it cost?

It depends! There is no membership fee to join the Intervale Food Hub. You can purchase as little or as much as you'd like from our online shop each week. There is no order minimum for pick-up at our hub, but there is a $25 weekly order minimum for free home delivery. Any order less than $25 requires a $10 delivery fee.

About 90% of our members receive a Produce Package each week, which is the best way to receive Vermont's produce each week. The packages come in 3 sizes at 3 different price points to meet your budgetary and dietary needs. Our Starter is the smallest and is $27.64/week; our Variety is our most popular and middle-sized, coming in at $34.64/week; and our Value is the largest and best value at $37.64/week. You can read more about each package here, or scroll to the bottom of the page to see our predictions for Winter.

What are my payment options for the Winter 2020/2021 season?

Just like Summer, we have two payment options for Winter 2020/2021: in full or weekly. Please note: even if you don't want any of the weekly recurring orders that we're offering for pre-registry, you'll still need to place a $100 prepay to secure your membership. This is so we can plan the number of orders we'll be handling week to week, and adjust staffing/scheduling as needed.

Pay-In-Full: If you are able to pay upfront for the recurring items in your Winter season membership, your first week will be free as a thank-you! Once we’ve confirmed your recurring weekly order with you, we'll charge the card on file for the total amount (weekly total multiplied by 27 regular delivery weeks), minus your first week. This will act as a credit on your account that you will draw from throughout the season. Should you decide to add items to your order à la carte, the payment will come out of the account credit. If you take a week off,  no funds will be deducted from your account. If you run out of credit on your account - in other words, when your account balance hits $0 - you'll start paying weekly (the card on file will be charged every Monday at 6am). Please contact us with any questions.

Pay-By-Week: If you prefer to pay by week throughout the Winter season, we require a $100 prepay to secure your membership. Once you've confirmed any recurring weekly orders with us, we'll charge the card on file for the $100 prepay. This will be applied as a credit to your account for the Winter season; once you've used the credit on your account entirely, you'll start paying weekly (the card on file will be charged every Monday at 6am.) If you take a week off,  the card on file will not be charged; you only pay for what you order each week! Note: you do not need to have a recurring weekly order to join our Winter season, but we do require a $100 prepay to secure your spot.

What products are available to pre-order for the Winter 2020/2021 season?

We will have many products available for a la carte ordering in our shop during the Winter 2020-2021 season. Many of those items are able to be set as a recurring order, which means you can add an item to your cart one time and receive it in your order every week.

For our most popular products that require a bit more advanced planning than our average shop item, we require pre-registration and a commitment to receive these items each week throughout the Winter season. (Out of town one week, or simply don’t need the produce? You can always set a delivery hold to pause that week’s order.) Certain items are in higher demand and/or are logistically complex to source and pack out each week.

Items available for pre-order are:

Produce Packages: CSA-style curated produce packages (Starter, Variety, and Value)

Extras: our Omnivore bundle, free-range eggs and organic bread

If you don't want to receive any of those items each week, and prefer to shop entirely a la carte, that is completely fine; you will still need to pre-register for summer to secure your spot, selecting 'pay-by-week' and depositing $100 to be used as a credit on your account at the start of the season.

I'm currently a member of the Intervale Food Hub. Do I need to pre-register to continue receiving deliveries?

Yes. Please fill out our registration form at the top of this page, where you can choose to continue receiving your current recurring orders (if any), or modify your order for the Winter season.

I want a recurring order every week. Do I need to pre-register?


Yes. We are taking pre-registrations for specific items that require more advanced planning and are in the majority of members' baskets every week. If you want these items in your order every week, you must select them in the registration form. They are: produce packages, omnivore bundle, and/or bread/eggs. We are not taking pre-registrations for any other recurring orders, but they will be available for purchase once Winter starts.

I want a recurring order every week and also want to add other items from the shop. Can I still do that?

Yes. You can always customize your recurring order, just like you can now. You can purchase items a la carte each week once Winter has started. We expect to have a wide selection of produce, proteins, and provisions available in the shop each week.

I don’t want any recurring orders; I only want to order from the shop. Do I need to pre-register?

Yes. You will still need to pre-register for Winter 2020-2021 and deposit a $100 prepay to secure your spot. We expect to have a wide selection of items available in the shop each week.
