Harper Schlagheck says she was inspired after creating a vision board for school.

"I just always like to help, so I thought I could make meals for people and I know that some people don't have food or water, so I thought I could give them meals," she said.

Harper has already prepared 50 meals that were distributed by the Park West Foundation to current and former foster care children in Oakland and Wayne counties.
