SDSU Bug Banquet 2024

Friday, February 23, 2024 from 12 PM to 3 PM
SDSU Ellen Ochoa Pavillion room 203 (EOP203)
Parking at SDSU is not free

What: Bug Banquet and Lecture with celebrity Chef Joseph Yoon (Brooklyn Bugs)

When: Feb. 23, 2024, Noon -3 p.m.

Where: Ellen Ochoa Pavilion, room 203 at San Diego State University

Chef Joseph Yoon, a world renowned chef, educator, and advocate for edible insects and insect agriculture, will deliver a lecture followed by a tasting menu prepared with SDSU students that feature edible insects. The aim is to convey the message that while the consumption of edible insects is regularly consumed by billions of people in over 80% of the world’s nations, it still requires the proper introduction and promotion in American culture as a delicious, sustainable, nutrient dense source of both protein and food.

This event aligns with the research led by Dr. Changqi Liu and his colleagues, who are exploring the viability of high-quality protein alternatives to conventional animal products. This is also the second collaboration between Dr. Liu and Brooklyn Bugs (2019 & 2024).

This event is sponsored by the SDSU office of Student Affairs and Campus Diversity, via the Student Success Fee. It will be co-hosted by the Center for Better Food Futures and the Student Nutrition Organization.
