Nancy LaBreacht from Whole Foods Market in nearby Park Ridge, recently gave our club an interesting and impressive lecture and demonstration on one of America's most innovative grocery chains.


From a single natural foods store start in 1980 with a grocery store employing 19 people to an organization of 2000 employees to-day with locations from coast to coast. Architectural remodeling is presently ongoing on five former Dominick stores nearby, to be open coming January 2015.


"America's call for a balanced, gluten-free healthy diet, with the most nutritious food, without artificial flavorings, sweeteners, colorings and preservatives, is the path our organization follows. Being totally switched to organic foods by 2015, is Whole Foods Markets goal." said Nancy LaBreacht.


And we all got goody bags!
