We are edible insect ambassadors.
Our mission is to raise appreciation and awareness for edible insects through delicious, educational, and creative programming. Our work has been featured on the Smithsonian Channel, New York Times, NPR, Food and Wine, Live with Kelly and Ryan, Forbes, and Gizmodo, as we strive to introduce edible insects as a sustainable source of protein that can be found in your pantry, eaten as a snack, and beautifully plated by chefs.
We had a magical time at the Brooklyn Bugs Festival and want to thank each and every one of you for your participation and enthusiasm this year! We'll be sharing pictures and videos onto our social media and website regularly, and also post reviews from attendees on our blog. Feel free to get in contact if you'd like to submit your festival experience on our blog.
