Bugs…as a snack? That was the message that Concordia University PhD student Laura Shine was pushing at a sold-out town hall at Concordia on Nov. 24, where we showcased the future of work and employment for students and parents alike—with some interesting food options on the side. Shine, who studies entomophagy (the eating of insects), is hoping to convince people that sustainable snacks made from crickets and mealworm flour are more than mere novelty.
