Rolling Grocer 19

Rolling Grocer 19 (RG19) is a non-profit, year-round, mobile grocery store that hits the streets of Hudson starting September 19 and will be located in front of the library on Saturdays from 1:30-4pm.

Developed in collaboration with local Hudson residents, RG19 is a community-led response to solve real challenges around food and economic inequality in our county.

Food on the trailer will be made affordable through a fair pricing system: customers will self-select into one of three price levels and pay for products according to their financial ability.

Hannaford Helps Community Bags Support the Friends!

The Friends of the Hudson Area Library has been chosen by the Hannaford store on Route 82 in Livingston as the latest beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag program! This means every time you purchase a Hannaford Helps Community Bag at the Livingston Hannaford store during the month of March, the Friends will receive $1 to help fulfill their mission. The bags can be found at the reusable bag rack and various registers. By purchasing these reusable bags, you’ll not only be supporting the Friends, but also helping to eliminate waste by skipping the paper/plastic bag options at checkout. Sounds like a win-win!
