Chirps for Thought is a CFC working group aiming to lay the groundwork for the widespread adoption of edible insects in the Concordia community by challenging perceptual and economic barriers. Its objectives are threefold, namely to: 1) implement a participative insect farm in the basement of the Hall building using food waste as feed and producing both edible insects and organic fertilizer for community plant growers; 2) develop educational activities allowing for people to get familiarized with edible insects; and 3) build an alternative food network that promotes exchanges between student groups. This project, beginning in fall 2017, shall provide crucial insights on the identification of successful strategies and tools allowing for the adoption of edible insects as a locally-produced source of protein for the Concordia community and the urban population in general.
