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 help explain why the United Nations endorses edible insects to address the issues of food scarcity 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 Fall/Winter of 2019/20. Please contact us if you’re interested in receiving more information.
We are honored that James Beard Winning food.curated. shared our story in our favorite video feature ever! This video not only shares our mission and highlights our food, but also shows the colorful personality of our Executive Director and Chef Joseph Yoon.
