SOUP is a potluck style dinner supplied, in part, by FoodLab Detroit. Bring some food to pass if you would like - your donations are greatly appreciated. It doesn't have to be crazy, but consider that there are 150-200 people who come to the dinner. Anything from soup, salad, dessert, to your favorite meal. Remember that you get 60 seconds to share about ANYTHING you are working on in the city. We will be working with FoodLab Detroit entrepreneurs, so you will also hear from them.
