ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – What started as a bat mitzvah project has grown into a local non-profit organization. Sophie Bernstein thought of Go Healthy St. Louis as a way to provide local food banks with fresh produce thanks to local gardens.
Sophie has recruited and trained more than 750 teen volunteers to build, plant, and maintain gardens. More than 5,000 pounds of fresh produce has been delivered to local food banks thus far.
Her dedication to the program led Bernstein to be one of 15 recipients of the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Award.
