Don Bugito Update

Hello Everyone!

Sadly I have to let you know that Don Bugito food Cart project did not reached its goal. This means two things:

One: You wont get charge from your account the money your pledge

Two: I'm really thankful for your support. Thank you. We tried!

I haven't give up and I'm sure you will here from me again in a couple of months :) meanwhile you can visit Don Bugito at MOSTO in Valencia and 18th every Monday and Off The Grid at Fort Mason every other Friday. I also want to let you know that I was featured yesterday in a documentary made by KQED QUEST: http://science.kqed.org/quest/video/edible-insects-finger-lickin-grub/ and this coming Monday PBS Newshour is coming to MOSTO, please feel free to stop by and say hello! 

I hope to see all of you soon to personally thank you for believing in this project.

Love,

Monica

Don Bugito Update!

Hi everyone!

Thank you so much for all your help with this project! It is nice to know that some people out there believe in some way or other in Don Bugito, nobody told me that this was going to be easy, it has been a difficult challenge, but I'm still here fighting for something I truly believe can make a positive change in the production and consumption of food.

I want to share with all of you that PBS NOVA is filming Don Bugito this coming Friday at my house and at Off the Grid at Fort Mason, where Don Bugito has been selling its food since the 23rd of March, also Don Bugito will be doing a pop up at MOSTO once a week starting on April 23rd! this was possible with the great help of my extended great family of La Cocina, thank you! I hope to see you all of you in some of these events!

Please keep sharing this link as we are a little behind with the fundraising, I need all of you help if possible! Keep believing in Don Bugito! Yes we can! haha.

Tons of hugs,

Monica
