Treasure W.Katie Stagliano

Have you ever wanted to make a difference in the world but weren't sure where to start? Katie Stagliano proves that starting small can lead to big changes. In third grade, Katie planted a cabbage seed. She watched it grow to an unexpected 40 pounds! Katie brought it to her local soup kitchen, and it helped feed 275 people. She realized she could help feed more people by growing more vegetables. That's why Katie started Katie's Krops, an organization that works to end hunger. Through her program, kids and teens across the country plant gardens to help feed people who need fresh, healthy food. Read Katie's interview to hear how she got started and her advice for giving back and reaching your goals.
