In February 2019, my daughter, Stephanie, invited Terry Lynn and I to bring the Bug Show to W. M. Irvin Elementary in Concord, NC.
On April 10, 2019, the Soaring Arrows 4-H club of Round Hill invited me to share my passion for eating insects. The 4-H motto lists head, heart, hands, and health. I do sincerely believe insects in our diet would lead to better health. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations stated that Eating Bugs Could Combat Obesity.
