The article on Poetry X Hunger is live! You can read the story on the Food Tank website:
Food Tank highlights hope and success in agriculture. Food Tank initiative features innovative ideas that are already working on the ground, in cities, in kitchens, in fields and in laboratories. These innovations need more attention, more research, and ultimately more funding to be replicated and scaled-up.
A wonderful article was posted about PoetryXHunger initiative on Quota website recently. The article was released in conjunction with World Poetry Day.
Thank you for this feature!

AaronR's poem is mentioned in the blog post.
We want to thank the folks at The Capital Area Food Bank for providing AaronR with the (first of its kind) poet-in-residence opportunity, to our friends at Pennsylvania State University for hosting the GLAG21 Conference where you learned of AaronR's poem, and to our colleagues at UNFAO/LOW and Split This Rock for their ongoing support.
