Buggy Buffet

It's that time of year again! Our 13th Annual Buggy Buffet (Insect Smorgasbord), sponsored by the freshman students in "A Bug's Life" (FYS 129) and the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology, is scheduled for 3:30 to 5:30 pm, Thursday, October 24, 2018, in Hollingsworth Auditorium.

Please place this date on your calendar and join us for this tasty, entomological feast to illustrate the importance of insects as food throughout the world. Several special surprises (along with fan favorites) are planned this year. We also plan to showcase some of the insect products that are produced and marketed in Tennessee and the U.S.

Also at this year's Buggy Buffet, we will announce the winners of our 1st UT Creepy Crawly Photo Contest! If you don't like to eat them, then just come to look at them! A Silent Auction will be held in conjunction with the Buggy Buffet to help support our efforts. Numerous insect-themed items and artwork will be available to purchase - Gifts for the bugged ones in your life! BUGS RULE (and they taste good, too! - at least some of them)!

Surprising, I don’t know that so many bugs can eat.
