Poetry and World Food Day

Updated: Sep 9, 2022

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations hosted a powerful commemoration of World Food Day in North America on October 16, 2021. The recording of the 90-minute session features four amazing Food Heroes from Canada and the U.S. It also showcases poems by Thomas Schuelke (read by Alice Major) from Canada and Molly Ponkevitch Burack from the US. The poems start at about 1 hour and 15 minutes into the program. Be sure to catch Molly's surprise announcement as she gets ready to read her poem. And, check out all of the young energy in the video at the end of the program.

Here's the link to the News Release about the event.
