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, Boston Globe, Food and Wine, Live with Kelly and Ryan, Forbes, and Gizmodo, as we help explain why the United Nations endorses edible insects to address the issues of food security and sustainability.
We strive to introduce edible insects and normalize them in America as a sustainable source of protein that can be found in your pantry, eaten as a snack, and beautifully plated by chefs.
We recently completed our Spring College Tour and are currently booking for the 2019/20 Academic Year. Please contact us if you’re interested in receiving more information.
Please get in contact with us if you would like us to come to your school, university, or museum for the upcoming 2019-20 Season.
