Thought for Food


A Poetry Anthology Benefiting Denver Food Rescue

“These times we’re living in are unprecedented. At the beginning of the anthology, Cortney Collins states ‘A poem can only be / what it can access.’ A truth and practice to live by; categorically reflected at the heart of this relevant and much-needed collection where we can all sit at the table, as a people in solidarity, and share until a difference can be made. This is a book that will do you some good.”  – Barracuda Guarisco, founder of Really Serious Literature and author of Uncomfortable Music (Vegetarian Alcoholic, 2021)

edited by Emylee Frank, Kali Heals, Erica Hoffmeister, and Brice Maiurro

Food access and food insecurity are ubiquitous issues and mainline contributors to systemic racism and poverty. In the United States, a country that hoards the most private wealth in the world, 1 in 8 households have limited access to adequate food, creating quality of life disparities that pervade our social structures. Like so many other social and structural inequalities brought to light at the onset of COVID pandemic, food access rose to the surface. This is why we at South Broadway Press felt it duteous to partner with local nonprofit, Denver Food Rescue on this project—their model of rescuing food that would otherwise be wasted, and delivering it to the door of those in need, is a creative way of answering the call to solve some of these issues that surround food access.
