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 are currently on our Spring College Tour and hope to see you somewhere in America! We are also booking for the Fall/Winter of 2019/20. Please contact us if you’re interested in receiving more infomation.
