With a growing population of 8 billion people, 24% of the earth’s land is being used to raise livestock. Arts Academy students in Mr. Mac’s science classes took the initiative to show our community the importance and need for sustainable food. Crickets provide 4x the protein than beef, and are full of omega oils and vitamins. However, a shift in how we view ”strange” food such as crickets needs to happen, and these students are leading by example!
