Have you ever swallowed a bug? More than 80 percent of the world’s cultures eat insects — why don’t we? According to the United Nations, insects could very well be the food of the future. Raising grasshoppers as a food source could combat world hunger and reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 60 percent. Join David Gordon, the author of The Eat-a-Bug Cookbook for an adventure in entomophagy [eating bugs], and prepare yourself for the next big revolution in food production – using crickets, mealworms, and other eco-friendly alternatives to meat. The program concludes with free samples of edible insect snacks for everyone who attends.
