No food club in former Unified stores supplied by SuperValu that I've seen.

I was just in a New Seasons. It appears their preference is:
Own label when possible
Wild Harvest. If unavailable, Essential Everyday may be substitute (in paper you can get one 'Shoppers Value' item)
CADIA"

*Not technically a store brand but largely filling in that category at NSM.

I don't know if they use KeHe or UNFI for their "natural" items.

Market of Choice:
All Natural Directions offerings marked with green plastic over the shelf tags. Replaced with Wild Harvest in same product as depleted.

I will say that Wild Harvest packaging in canned and boxed goods looks "better" (stood out more) than Natural Directions.

Western Family being replaced with Essential Everyday.

MoC is more focused on regional, "natural," and specialty groceries but as the name implies, does allow for quite a bit of Choice.

It appears Supervalu is cutting ties with Topco and bringing in their own brands (no surprise). Wild Harvest always had good packaging.
