Description

Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation introduced a new award recognition category this year, “Growing Together”, which honored 2010 Stephen J. Brady Stop Hunger Scholar Katie Stagliano and provided $5,000 to her nonprofit Katie’s Krops. After growing a 40-pound cabbage in her backyard and donating it to a local soup kitchen, Katie Stagliano was inspired to see how many people an entire garden could feed. She started Katie’s Krops to feed those in need in her community, and inspire others to do the same. Katie’s Krops provides grants for youth to start vegetable gardens in their communities, and hosts monthly garden to table dinners for those in need. Today, Katie’s Krops has 100 youth-run vegetable gardens in 32 states. Since honored as a Stephen J. Brady Scholar in 2010, Katie has continued to grow as a leader, grow her community and help grow the Stop Hunger movement, one vegetable garden at a time.
