Chef Joseph Yoon will share his story of being the founder of Brooklyn Bugs, as an entrepreneur and the lessons he has learned, on Monday, February 10 at 5:30 pm in Norm 360.
Chef Joseph Yoon founded Brooklyn Bugs in 2017 with the mission to raise awareness and appreciation for edible insects through delicious, creative, and educational programming. Brooklyn Bugs receives numerous grants for their work as edible insect advocates with colleges and museums all across America (2018 - current). Their outreach and advocacy has reached millions of households as they have been featured in everything from the New York Times, to the Smithsonian Channel, to Live with Kelly and Ryan, to National Public Radio, to the Boston Globe as they help explain why the United Nations endorses edible insects to address issues of food security and sustainability.
Chef Yoon views his participation in this global food movement as an extension of his commitment to his community, and volunteers his time and resources with both Brooklyn Bugs and Yummy Eats (his private chef and catering company founded in 2011). Joseph currently resides in Brooklyn, NY.
