This months Local First Mixer was at Gio Taco! The food was amazing! Very Fresh! Gio Taco is located at 350 East Congress Tucson, AZ 85701 If you're downtown, stop in and have a street taco. I highly recommend the Melon Water... REFRESHING!
Kimber Lanning, founder of Local First Arizona, spoke about the Farm & Food Finance Forum and why it's so important to grow local and purchase local food. Arizona spends almost twice as much money to import produce from other states than it ships out. Her initiative will start introducing farmers to local merchants, restaurants and distributers.
