North Carolina poet, Kym Gordon Moore announces the official launch of Poets for Hunger©, a not-for-profit mission to feed and edify the mind, body and spirit through poetry. This platform is designed to rally poets into bringing greater awareness to the various aspects of hunger, through the efforts and support of the poetry community.

Kym Gordon Moore, Founder for Poets for Hunger© (PFH) and author of “Wings of the Wind: A Cornucopia of Poetry,” developed this platform to integrate her community outreach work with her love of poetry. Such incorporation includes eradicating the lack of food, increasing cognitive performance and improving emotional deficiency. According to Moore, “There are many poets in our local, national and global communities, using their poetic efforts to enhance lives and give back. Through such efforts, these poets also promote the arts and humanities. I am grateful for and encouraged by the type of support and excitement I see generated throughout the community with poetry. Through Poets for Hunger© I want poets everywhere to use this platform to show the type of impact they are making in their communities, while enhancing the poetry genre.” To learn more about Poets for Hunger©, visit http://www.poetsforhunger.com/.

Beginning September 1, 2014, Poets for Hunger© will begin collecting non-perishable food, in conjunction with the resident poets of the Indian Trail Cultural Arts Center. These donations will benefit local families in need for Thanksgiving. Those attending the monthly poetry open mic events are asked to bring at least 1 canned good or other non-perishable food item for their September, October and November readings, which occurs on the second Saturday each month. The monthly open mic readings at the Indian Trail Cultural Arts Center in Indian Trail, North Carolina, are free to the public.

Poets for Hunger© continues to collect Box Tops for Education labels to benefit a local school. Labels for the 2014-2015 school year will be donated to Indian Trail Elementary School, in Indian Trail, North Carolina. If you do not have a school in your area to support with the Box Tops for Education program, feel free to donate them to Poets for Hunger© instead of throwing them away.
