Food on Film | Bugs: Will Eating Insects Save Our Earth?, Feb. 9

Bugs Will eating insects save our Earth? A gastrionomic adventure with Nordic Food Lab by Andreas Johnsen

February is Food on Film Month! The Food Studies Theme and other co-sponsors are proud to bring three amazing films for free to the Athena Cinema.

The Food on Film Series presents its second free showing of the year: Bugs: Will Eating Insects Save Our Earth?  on Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. The film is free and open to the public at the Athena Cinema.

“Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, they have been heralded for their taste by cooks and gastronomes, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists, and for their nutritional content by public health scientists. It would seem that insects are the new superfood that will fix all our problems of global food security.”

Co-sponsors are the Food Studies theme, the Common Experience Project on Sustainability and Alden Library.
