Featured Event: Adventures in Bug Eating

At the Coupeville Library this week –

Adventures in Bug Eating
Friday, September 29
1-2 p.m.
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 George 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. For ages 5-18. Funded by the Friends of the Coupeville Library.

    My kids would love to go to this program. Is there any chance it will come to Everett or nearby?

      Hi Mabel, I checked our calendar, the Everett Public Library’s calendar, and the Bug Safari website, but didn’t see any upcoming local sessions listed. However, you might try calling or emailing Bug Safari, since they didn’t list any of their appearances on their website. Here’s their contact information – 425-829-4869 or info@seattlebugsafari.com).
