We love when one small thing, or in this case, one 40-lb cabbage can inspire a movement. Katie Stagliano was just 9 and in third grade when her gardening skills grew a 40-lb cabbage that fed 275 people and inspired her to launch an ongoing campaign to feed the hungry. Moved by the experience of seeing how many people could benefit from the donation of fresh produce to soup kitchens, Katie decided to start vegetable gardens and donate the harvest to help feed people in need. Katie’s Krops was born!
This is one inspired tween!
