PRODUCE SPOTLIGHT
All About Grapes!
Grapes have been cultivated for over 8,000 years.  Wine residue dating from roughly 6,000 BCE has been found in ancient pottery jars uncovered in the Central Asian state of Georgia.  The practice  spread to the Middle East, as evidenced by references in texts such as the Code of Hammurabi and the Hebrew Bible.  Wine drinking eventually spread to Europe through the Greeks.
A natural yeast forms on grapes which aids in the fermentation process. Grapes are used in diverse food products, including vinegar, juice, jellies, jams, oils and, of course, dried into raisins.
Californian table grape production began in 1839 when William Wolfskill, a former Kentucky fur-trapper, planted the first such vineyard in the pueblo of Los Angeles.  The naturally sweet treats were a hit, and farmers began cultivating vineyards in California.  Today, 99% of the table grapes consumed in the USA are grown in the Golden State. 
Nutritionally grapes are rich in Thiamine, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Phosphorous, Potassium, and Calcium. Red and purple grapes have resveratrol which is both anti-fungal and an anti-oxidant. Consuming grapes can help prevent heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. It is a low glycemic fruit and is considered safe for diabetics. Grapes are also known for anti-cancerous qualities as well as anti-aging benefits.
  Commercially grown grapes are notorious for pesticide residue. Thankfully, the Co-op exclusively stocks organically grown or pesticide free grapes. Enjoy alone, in a salad, or with nuts or cheese to compliment grapes naturally delicious flavor.

LETTER FROM THE BOARD
Last week we announced that CNFC will be relocating in three to six years.  This being my third year serving on the board and second as Board President, I can’t imagine a more exciting time to be part of our dynamic and outstanding Co-op. As board members, we act as a hinge between members and management, keeping our eye on the vision for the store, and weighing in on big decisions, like where the new store will be located.  To be sure, we will be in communication with you throughout the process of finding our new fantastic home. We will give you updates about concrete possibilities as they arise, and solicit feedback, ideas, and vision refinement from you throughout the year.  Be on the lookout for our Annual Meeting which takes place October 10th where we will discuss the relocation progress. We would love to see you all there!  Plus, there will be several board seats up for election this Fall, maybe you have what it takes to be part of a proactive cooperative board?  Please be in touch:  http://www.chiconatural.com/bod
