If ever you needed convincing that poetry can powerfully Speak Back to Hunger, then I'd really encourage you to watch this 2-minute video.
#GLAG21 - One Poem, One Community - YouTube
The video premiered yesterday during the Global Learning in Agriculture 2021 (GLAG21) Conference's Poetry Cafe -- all hosted by good colleagues at Pennsylvania State University (PSU) It presents, with captions, GLAG21's Poetry Contest winning poem, Hunger Pains, by young poet, Tyler Cook.
In the video, Tyler reads the first few lines of his poem and is then followed by several other poets and friends from Korea, Zimbabwe, Ireland, the US and Kenya as they read sections of his amazing poem.
The GLAG Conference is designed to provide K-18 teachers around the world with new and exciting insights and tools, like poetry, as they engage learners in discussions of agriculture, food, nutrition, hunger and related topics.

Congratulations to Tyler! And kudos to PSU's Dr. Daniel Foster, Dr. Melanie Miller Foster and Mr. Carson LeTot for creating the space for poetry to shine.
