Poetry at the Food Bank
This past year, Patti Ross was our first Poet-in-Residence at the Anne Arundel County Food Bank and during her time she created three poems that provide a heartfelt and powerful message of supporting our community members and addressing food insecurity. Each of the poems are featured below. We thank Hiram Larew of Poetry X Hunger for providing the funding to support Patti’s work.
