The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) Vermont formerly known as Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program (VRRP) and City Market have had a long-standing partnership for a number of years. Since 2011, we’ve partnered on a monthly cooking class series titled A Mosaic of Flavor, where different cooks from the Vermont refugee community teach a class showcasing food from their home country and tell stories about their background and journey to Vermont.

In January, when you round up at the register, your donation will help to support a number of projects focused on strengthening our local food system through our Co-op Seedling Grants program.

Spring has sprung and it’s time for another round of Co-op Seedling Grants! Now in its fifth year, this grant program has previously been supported through the generosity of our Members in the form of uncashed Patronage Refund Checks. However, we anticipate that it will take several years for the Co-op to return to profitability after opening the South End store in November 2017.

Earlier this month we hosted our twelfth installment of The Dish series at ArtsRiot in Burlington's South End. The Dish is a collaborative “series for inquisitive eaters” organized by City Market and the Intervale Center to explore hot topics in the food world. For this installment, we looked at the role of women in the food industry with the help of Change the Story, a statewide organization focused on women's economic well-being.

In celebration of National Cooperatives Month, October was a time for getting out into our beautiful Burlington community! In addition to the 1,400 hours completed by our Member Workers this month, we hosted our final Crop Mob of the season and an employee volunteer night with The Good Food Truck!

Throughout the growing season, City Market hosts Crop Mobs at area farms. These volunteer work parties give our Member Workers an opportunity to get their hands dirty and learn more about the farms where we’re purchasing our food from. Last month, we helped with weeding at Pitchfork Farm in the Intervale and just this past Saturday, on an uncharacteristically hot fall day, we harvested potatoes at Jericho Settlers Farm in Richmond.
