People write poetry to share their thoughts and feelings about their lives and their world. Although many poems are about nature, family or love, you can write a poem about anything--even food!  The activities on this page show you how.

We would love to see your poetry, and may feature it on the Ingredients page, social media or in other Food Hero materials. 

- Please mail poetry to Lauren Tobey, OSU, 106 Ballard Hall, Corvallis, OR 97331 

- Or email to
