Item 5.03.  Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal

On September 13, 2007, the Board of Directors of United Natural Foods, Inc. (the
"Company") approved amendments to Section 1.9 of the Company's Amended and
Restated Bylaws (the "Bylaws") to change the voting standard for the election of
directors in uncontested elections from a plurality to a majority of the votes
cast with respect to that director. A majority of the votes cast means that the
number of shares voted "for" a director must exceed the number of votes cast
against that director. In contested elections (or elections in which the number
of nominees exceeds the number of directors to be elected), directors will
continue to be elected by a plurality of the shares represented in person or by
proxy at the meeting and entitled to vote on the election of directors. In
addition, if a nominee who already serves as a director is not elected, the
director must offer to tender his or her resignation to the Board of Directors.
The Nominating and Governance Committee of the Board of Directors will make a
recommendation to the Board on whether to accept or reject the resignation, or
whether other action should be taken. The Board will act on the Nominating and
Governance Committee's recommendation and publicly disclose its decision and the
rationale behind it within 90 days from the date of the certification of the
election results.

The amendment to the Bylaws is effective as of September 13, 2007, and the
Bylaws, as amended, are attached as Exhibit 3.1 hereto.
