It’s time for the 7th Annual Local Food Summit!  Locavorious is proud to sponsor this great event yet again with locally grown frozen peaches, blueberries, eggplant and tomatoes that the Michigan Dining chefs are incorporating into what sounds like a fantastic menu of nearly all local food for breakfast and lunch during the summit.
